I was wondering if anyone knows what it is or if it is some kind of message. Any help would be greatly appreciated

RE: Is this a computer language?

I'm going to guess gibberish.  One thing you can typically count on are braces/brackets/parentheses being matched in pairs (and most often in the correct open/close order).  This piece of whatever has neither. If it is a language, it was probably written for some code obfuscation contest winky smile

It looks much like Leetspeak, but I can't make head or tails out of it.

RE: Is this a computer language?

Maybe Leetspeak in Dutch?  Looks like 9 sentences
