Over a decade ago, I started a little project to get the phrase "Hell's teeth and Satan's kittens!" translated into many languages as possible – (all is explained here: https://satans-kittens.neocities.org/hells_teeth/#why)
At the time someone kindly offered to make the Klingon translation for me, but I wasn't sure how accurate it would be as I did not know the person's proficiency or where I could get ti checked.. The website fell by the way-side for many years, until a few months back, I decided to resurrect it. I am still trying to get as many languages as possible, but now, I would like audio files as well, so people ca hear the phrase spoken.
I recently found the Klingon Language Institute while looking for info on Esperanto, so decided to give it another shot.
Does anyone feel up to the task of making a translation of "Hell's teeth and Satan's kittens!" into Klingon (or any other language for that matter!) for me?
Also, I would really appreciate a spoken audio file as well 🙂 The task requires a little of acting, as I would like the speaker to sound surprised (good examples are given in the English, Finnish and Russian audio files)
The website is a personal project and has no commercial ties and I can't really offer anything in return, other than the person's name and say a link to a relevant website/organisation.
Klingon doesn't have words for "Hell", "Satan", or "Kitten" so it's not going to be a literal translation. The best I can suggest is:
ghe'tor Ho'Du' veqlargh vIghro'Hommey je
Gre'thor's teeth and Fek'lhr's baby v'gro
Gre'thor is the afterlife where the dishonored dead go. It's similar to hell, but without the eternal punishment overtones. Fek'lhr is the guardian of Gre'thor. His job being to keep people both in and out of Gre'thor.
