You instantly and flawlessly copy up to an entire page of non-magical text and/or images that you can see to another page or receptive medium. During the transcription process, you can decide to have the contents translated into a language of your choice. You must be fluent in the source and the destination language in order to do this.

This spell can transcribe magical text or images, such as written spells, to another medium. However, casting the spell this way incurs an additional material cost: 25 gold pieces worth of rare inks is consumed per the spell level of each copied spell. Additionally, the total level of the transcribed spells must be equal to or lower than the level this spell is cast at, otherwise the spell fails.

At Higher Levels. The amount of content able to be transcribed increases for each spell slot above 1st. Refer to as such according to the table. The pages may be split between multiple books, but all relevant objects must be within 5 feet of you when you cast this spell.
