    [Halloween, 2013, updated link, Bing fixed the script code for pIqaD] People have asked me where to get a pIqaD font to use with Bing's Klingon Translator http://www.bing.com/translator/?from=en&to=tlh-Qaak&text=Hello%20Earth,%20I%20made%20the%20font That's actually a font I made. (I'm...
  • Blog Post: Bing Translator, Klingon High Council, and Klingon Language Institute announce support for Klingon as a Bing Translator Option!

    The Bing Translator folks have announced support for Klingon as a translator option. This was also proclaimed by the Klingon High Council. I've blogged about making a Windows Klingon Custom Locale and Klingon font fallback for the Windows 8 lock screen, and now you can translate all those Klingon...
  • Blog Post: Klingon Win8 Lock Screen: Might Sell Qurgh on Win8 After All :)

    A while ago I blogged about Klingon in pIqaD in a Custom Locale - that worked OK in Vista & Win7 using Uniscribe font fallback, but Win8 uses DWrite in a lot of places, and DWrite really would prefer EUDC (End User Defined Character) fallback.

I just checked out your blog (very nice by the way, lots of stuff I need to read) and I noticed along the top of the page you have  (jItlhInganbe') for "I'm not a Klingon". The translation your looking for would be  ...
  • Blog Post: Klingon in pIqaD Windows Vista Custom Locale

    [Updated 11 Aug 2006, changed tlh-pIqaD-US names to reflect IETF standard] Cool, they let us post files now I'll have to try that out. The example only works for Windows Vista, although the culture would work for Microsoft .Net 2.0. Creating a custom locale for a script that isn't in one of the...
