Of all the universal phenomena, perhaps one of the most fascinating is that the Klingon language has become a real language, spoken by many Star Trek fans around the world. In Outer Ring, we could not turn a blind eye to such a clamorous event.
No, this is no joke. As of today, Outer Ring is fully translated into Klingon and no, we are not crazy, we have dared to incorporate into Outer Ring that famous language of those “cute” aliens that populated Star Trek.
For those who don’t know, Klingon goes beyond a simple fiction language, since behind it is the linguist Marc Okrand, who invented it in the beginning for the ‘Star Trek’ movies and series. Over time, Okrand took the time to develop a truly complete and functional language.
Today, Okrand himself has written an opera and even a Klingon-English dictionary. There are even more dictionaries for other languages, books published in this language and the Klingon Language Institute in Pennsylvania, which has been teaching this language for 20 years through courses for all ages.
We must remember that Klingon is not at all simple, since unlike other languages, it makes use of apostrophes between words, besides the fact that the meaning of words can change if they are written in capital or small letters.
