Tizowyrms are organisms able to store an incredible amount of information and transmit it to their hosts through vibration. This information is typically the language of one of the Species of the known galaxy allowing them to act as translation organisms (Thus granting a temporary language to their host while implanted in their 'ear'). Shapers later created breeds of Tizowyrm capable of translating Yuuzhan Vong, so that their slaves could understand their commands.
Occasionally, the Tizowyrm makes mistranslations with unfamiliar concepts- "Peace," "Mercy," and "Amnesty" are words that do not exist in the Yuuzhan Vong language so they often have trouble with their translations.
