Is the translation or encoding a unique mapping? How many possible ways are available to encode B?

There is an infinity of way to encode "B". Some can be just intensionally equivalent (different codes but same logic), or extensionally equivalent but not intensionally equivalent, like Bp and Bp & Dt. They prove the same arithmetical proposition, but obeys different logic.

OK, do you not see that the infinity of ways that "B" can be encoded makes the name of "B" ambiguous? The name of "B" is at most 1p; a private name and thus subject to Wittgenstein's criticism.
