Freiberg's "Petrikirche"

The flyer
In Freiberg's Petrikirche ("Church of St. Petrus") in Saxon, in december 2014 an information brochure was created in 27 languages(1), including Klingon. (2).

Klingon language

The text is written in a newer pIqaD-font, but the Klingon is a simple Bing-translation. This can be easily proved by typing "Dear visitors" into the Bing translator, which produces the wrong result DIHom vISItorS. Exactly this phrase is written in the first line of the flyer.

The Bing translation automatically includes transcribed English words. But there are also clearly German words (i.e. petrIturmeS "Petriturmes"), so it is rather clear that the text of origin was provided in German. The English words appear because the Bing-Software translates first into English, if possible, and then to the requested language.

As a footnote the flyer mentions: "Translation: Shek' Spir with the support of the Klingon Language Institue (KLI)" It is to be doubted that William Shakespeare has worked on this and the help of the KLI is also unlikely. The mentioning of the KLI may come from the fact that it was involved in the development of the Klingon part of the Bing translator.


The latin transcription of the text is presented here, which isn't correct klingon. The wordwrap is the original one from the text.
