The Kanohi Rau was the Mask of Translation. The Great Rau gave its user the power to understand and speak in almost any written or spoken language. The Noble Rau, however, only lets the user understand writing and symbols. Both the Great and Noble versions allow the user to understand the intention behind carvings. However, if the target language is too old, then a Rau will not be able to translate it.
