Calling All Klingons!

Hey there,

If this thread is in the wrong place, my apologies.

I need help from someone(s) who speaks Klingon.

I need to know how to write/say in Klingon;

Dead Alien Legion

The idea, for an rpg I am running, is a military division populated by warriors from various conquered races, and prisoners, who are considered dead when thrown here, but may fight for the Glory of the Empire and perhaps earn their lives!

As I don't speak Klingon, I have no idea how to write/say this.

Can anyone help me out?

Cheers and thanks in advance!

I think google translate does Klingon now, if not try a search engine.

Bing has a Klingon translator.

Here's what it came up with:

Heghpu' nov Legion

qech, rpg qet, QI' division populated SuvwI' vo' Sar chargh Segh, 'ej yIn baj qama', 'Iv Heghpu' HeghDI' naDev chuH qel 'ach chaq SuvtaHvIS ben law' batlhmey wo' 'ej chaq!

I'll leave this open for a bit, in case there's anything else to discuss. Otherwise I will close it. Generally speaking, we don't keep threads that have one specific question that is easily answered.

Search engines are your friends!

Yeah I found the BING (shudder) one and ran into the Legion issue. Was hoping someone here could help me with proper syntax, as well as the correct word for legion.

As a person who speaks 2 languages, I am often amazed at the horrific translations these programs do on real, spoken everyday Earth languages, I can only imagine how badly they mangle Klingon

Maybe the Universal Translators of the 24th Century will be better, but I am a 23rd Century guy all the way!

Well to be fair Klingon is far from a complete language. If you really want a Klingon word for Legion try army, brigade, division, regiment, force or other similar terms for example.
