I don't actually have any code for this, as I have no real idea how to do it. I have a large binary number combination that I know turns into some sort of string. How would I go about translating it?

    $\begingroup$ How do you know it becomes a string? Is it a code? $\endgroup$ – Marius Ladegård Meyer Jun 3 '16 at 16:14
  • $\begingroup$ You really have to explain this better. What is a "binary number"? Can you show an example? How does it map to a string? $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Jun 3 '16 at 16:17
  • $\begingroup$ Where did the "large binary number combination that ... turns into some sort of string" come from? $\endgroup$ – J. M. is away Jun 3 '16 at 16:18
  • $\begingroup$ This question is too broad. The conversion from binary to string can be anything from @BobHanlon 's answer to converting binary to Unicode characters. $\endgroup$ – JungHwan Min Jun 3 '16 at 17:04
bin = 1011011;

words = (bin // IntegerDigits) /. {1 -> "one", 0 -> "zero"};

(str = StringJoin[Riffle[words, " "]]) // InputForm

(*  "one zero one one zero one one"  *)
