Thanks for the feedback tirrene. This type of puzzle is known as a cryptogram, where each of the letters in the alphabet is substituted with a certain character. Because of this, solving a whole word would likely solve much of a puzzle, because it would also solve the rest of those letters across the whole puzzle.
I'm working on a tutorial now to teach techniques on how to solve the puzzles. You're able to solve it using letter frequency and order clues, based on the glyph representations.
For instance, if the puzzle was "THEY GOT THE THING", the cryptogram might be "BQLE JUB BQL BQRWJ". The big hint here is the sequence "BQ". It occurs three times, and "TH" is the most common digraph in English. So you can try that out and see how the puzzle looks. "TH__ __T TH_ TH___".
