The recorded tutorials of Conversational Klingon are presented by actor Michael Dorn, who portrayed Worf on several of the Star Trek TV series, and feature author Dr. Marc Okrand, creator of the Klingon language.
The Klingon Language Suite includes:
- – Interactive, two-way bi-lingual text from English to Klingon

The Klingon Dictionary is the original comprehensive sourcebook for Klingon language, including fundamental rules of grammar as well as words and expressions that illustrate the complex nature of Klingon culture. The new digital format features a precise pronunciation guide, rules for proper use of affixes and suffixes, search menu, and provides answers where the universal translator comes up short.
So if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to speak Klingon, this looks like the app for you! It’s easy to navigate and the pronounciatons that come with the app will help anyone who needs to find their way in a group of Klingons at the next Star Trek convention.
