1337 is the language of hackers and newbies across the internet. Also, the words in 1337 are usually short(ie "are" becomes "r") and intentionally spelt wrong(ie "the" becomes "teh", this is most common with e switching places and o's becoming p's)

the mostly complete translation chart(exluding unicode characters, ie ©):
A=4 /-\ @ ^ /\
B=8 ]3 ]8 |3 |8
C=( {
D=) } |) |} |> >
E=3
F*=# |=
G=6 9 (_>
H=# |-| (-) )-( }{ {-} /-/ \-\
I=1 !

J**=_| j
K=|< |{
L=1 |_
M=/\/\ |\/|

N=/\/ |\| \
O=0 ()
P=|D |* |>
Q=0,
R=|2 |? |-
S=5
T=7 + ']'
U=(_) |_| \_\ /_/
V=\/
W=\/\/ |/\|
/\
X**=>< }{ X
Y='/ %
Z**=2 z

Common mispellings:
the = teh
that = taht
take = taek
own = pwn
you = joo
dude = jood

common phonetic replacements(always used in true 1337):
f = ph
ck == xx

*there is no 'F' in true 1337, it is replaced by the 'ph' phonetic in true 1337

**acceptable when not replaced by a symbol

1337, or "Leet(Elite)" is a computer language mostly used in the early days by hackers. 31337 was the UDP port hacked into on Windows 95. Since then it's been simplified to just 1337. Most hackers used it to 1.) Look like morons who were "cool" and 2.) Make it harder for people with enough intelligence to read REAL words, to track them. Now used mostly by posers, newbies, hackers, and anyone with the brain capacity of a fish.

Twenty three minutes to two.
1337, Regarded by many as the most "hardcore" time of the day, 13:37 is the single minute during which most murders, rapes, hold-ups and general pwnings occur.

One Thousand Three Hundred and Thirty Seven

Also known as Elite
1337 chat is used by either of the following
Used mainly by hackers (intelegent people who think they're cool by using numbers instead of letters normally losers in their school or community) 10% and wannabe hackers (idiots who don't know what they're actually saying but thinks its funny to see numbers when they are trying to put words in) 90%
.
I myself being a real hacker am not fond of "1337 chat" because it disrupts all meaning and just makes me look like a complete retard.

My common dictionary if ever using 1337 chat
A = 4
B = 13
C = { or (
D = l)
E = 3
F = F
G = 6 or 9
H = l-l
I = 1
J = J
K = l<
L = 1
M = lVl or /\/\
N = lV or /\/
O = 0 or () or

P = D or ]D
Q = Q
R = 12
S = 5
T = 7
U = U
V = \/
W = VV or \/\/ or lN
X = ><
Y = Y
Z = 2

Please give me a thumbs up =)

Oh my god I am so much more elite than you are.

Hacker speak for 'elite'. Basically, it means you've got intense skills. It is now an internet language used mainly by weak, unnatractive, failures wasting their lives in their low rent apartment.
For 99% of the internet users:
Teh 1337 @+ @ny+h!|\|g \/\/@$ 0|\|c3 @ |\|00b.

For people who actually have lives:
The elite at anything was once a beginner.

January 3rd, 1937, the most l33t day in history EVER.
"I wish I was born on 1-3-37, so I could've been born to be l33t."
