Geoffrey Chaucer (lived from 1343 - 1400) is known as the Father of English literature and is considered the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages. His most known work is The Canterbury Tales.(1). Chaucer was also known for his tradition of free adaptation in translations – in other words, he loved a bit of paraphrasing. (2)

Chaucer Translation Project

One of the projects of the Interstellar Language School was to translate works of Chaucer into Klingon (3)
