dementomstie - 2013-07-04 I'm surprised that they(the Klingon Language Institute) translated 'Much Ado About Nothing' into Klingon, but not 'Taming of the Shrew'. While both make sense from a Klingon Romance point of view 'Taming of The Shrew' involves actual fighting.
Besides, while "I Hate Men" would be easy to translate into that most noble of languages, I don't think "Brush Up Your Shakespeare" would translate very cleanly.

kingarthur - 2013-07-04 I'm surprised at how well the Klingon matches the rhythm and syllabic structure of the original.
qurgh - 2014-12-10 We did that on purpose so it could be sung without having to learn new timing.
