I was wondering if they were published somewhere, I mean i have ork runes and tau glyphs but nothing about Eldars or Dark Eldar.

Any material on the subject is welcome.

The best collection of eldar runes is in the 2nd ed codex (there are but a handful in the 3rd and 4th eds). The DE runes are in the codex. 3rd ed eldar also gives a 'relationship' tree concerning the eldar and their place in the universe.

Uhm, the only runes I found are in the 2ed codex at page 21, there are many other runes around the codex, but no translation is given. :\

I also went thru the 4th edition codex, and runes only appear in the bg or as decorative items, illustrating the various units/avatar/vehicles but no translation or in-depth analysis.

The whole idea is eldar runes (aka their written language) is so complex even Imperial specialists require a lifetime to study it and still not understand it.

Hence why there are very few translations given.

There are also a few in the old WD127 where the craftworlds of the eldar and the whole aspect thing was first revealed - most of this was in the 2nd ed codex, though.
