Klingon Translator

A few month ago I wrote a small android app to generate random klingon names. Just for fun and testing. Than a few days later I've got mail from Lieven L. Litaer. He is Klingon teacher from Germany and he told me that my app was really really stupid :-).

It was just combining random Klingon consonants and vowels. So the names the app was generating cannot be spoken by any real Klingon. He gave me a few basic Klingon phonemic rules on how to build syllables, words and real Klingon names that can be spoken by a Klingon.

With his support I was able to translate his rules into the web programming language JavaScript and released this as an web app.

You can find the translator here
