The text is Aurebesh, the Star Wars alphabet:

The text at the bottom left of the diagram reads:

MODIFIED VCX-100 LIGHT FREIGHTER

The text at the bottom-right of the diagram, under the insignia, reads:

CORRELIAN ENGINEERING CORPORATION

The bottom-left quadrant of the image reads:

1.NOSE TURRET ?1 S2 UNNER STATION3
2. FORWARD FLOODLIGHTS
3. MAIN COCKPIT
4. CREW QUARTERS
5. PORT DOCKING RING
6. STARBOARD DOCKING RING
7. DORSAL LASER CANNON TURRET
8. MAIN CARGO HOLD
9. ENGINE ASSEMBLY

The bottom-right quadrant reads:

1 The character here appears to be a punctuation mark, which doesn't have an entry in any translation table I've been able to find

2 I know, it doesn't make sense to me either. But that's the character that's there. It's all the more confusing because of the spacing; the 'S' character appears to be a full space between it and the preceding punctuation mark, but only a half-space between it and the following character; judging by the "Metrics" section, it seems customary to place a space following a punctuation mark, but I'm not sure what to make of the half-space.

3 This was the hardest line to translate, so what's above is a direct transliteration. Doing some intuitive error-correcting, there are two main possibilities for what it's meant to say:

  • "NOSE TURRET'S GUNNER STATION"
  • "NOSE TURRET & GUNNER STATION"

No idea which is correct, but everything you need to know is there anyway
