Gilgamesh: A Klingon Translation – Wikidata
When the course was finished at the end of November I found myself with this new free time. My skill with the Klingon language, though filgamesh superior by any means, had reached a point where I was able to read jatmey without looking up a word on every page. And having read jatmeywhat else was there to read?
Hamletbeing Shakespearewas too much. I wanted simple stories of warriors of the old days. But there weren’t any available.
Hmm, maybe I could do something? So I translated ghIlghameS At the time I wasn’t thinking about other klingonists.
I simply wanted to prove to myself that I could do it. It took seven months. With the setup fee, it more cost affective to have several copies made instead of just one for me. So, I had a set of hard cover, Klingon only versions of the book printed up.
I went to the podium, and said “We now have ghIlghameS! But if you’re going to give your money to someone, you should buy the book directly from the KLI on their merchant page.
The current version is a paperback with the Klingon on the left klinggon and the English on the right pages. Many find it a good tool for beginners.

DloraH uses very simple grammer in his translation. It’s probably the closest to a “Dick and Jane” book we’ll get. Log In or Register. All text is available under the terms of a Creative Commons License.
