The Voynich manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptographers, including American and British code breakers from both World War I and World War II. The manuscript has never been demonstrably deciphered, and the mystery of its meaning and origin has excited the popular imagination, making it the subject of novels and speculation. None of the many hypotheses proposed over the last hundred years has been independently verified. In 1969, the Voynich manuscript was donated by Hans P. Kraus to Yale University’s Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library.

However, the mystery has finally been put to rest. Ata Team Alberta (ATA) has deciphered and translated over 30% the manuscript. Currently, a formal paper of the philological study was submitted to an academic journal published by John Hopkins University.

ANOTHER DECODING CLAIM –
From Ancient Origins Website:
(Reconstructing The Story of Humanity’s Past.)
Claims of ‘cracking the code’ of the Voynich manuscript have lost their sheen somewhat over the last few years, with weak cases being presented from all and sundry. This attempt, described confidently in a research paper by the University of Bristol in South West, UK seems to have solid backing.

The Voynich Manuscript: The Mysterious Code That Has Defied Interpretation for Centuries.
3rd Edition, First North American Edition
An examination of the many theories surrounding this enigmatic text, apparently written in code.
• Reveals the connections between this work and the Cathars, Roger Bacon, and the mystic John Dee.
• Explains the cryptoanalysis methods used in attempts to break the code.
• Includes color images from the manuscript juxtaposed with other medieval writings.
Since its discovery by Wilfrid Voynich in an Italian monastery in 1912, the Voynich Manuscript has baffled scholars and cryptoanalysis with its unidentifiable script and bizarre illustrations. Written in an unknown language or an as yet undecipherable code, this medieval manuscript contains hundreds of illustrations of unknown plants, cosmological charts, and inexplicable scenes of naked “nymphs” bathing in a green liquid that some interpret as a symbolic depiction of human reproduction and the joining of the soul with the body. Both Kindle and Paperback editions are available.
