Re: KLBC: ghov/qaw

If we are to accept cultural stereotypes, the German people have 
a long reputation for having a special appreciation for 
precision and accuracy. It is perversely ironic that the German 
version of the Klingon Dictionary should be so inaccurate. 
Surely, the translation was done by someone who wasn't German.
