	It probably depends on the language in question.  Some languages
have specific conventions (which I don't pretend to really understand, but
here goes.)

	I can imagine in Spanish it would be 'Klingon' (pronounced with a
hard 'g')  Russian might be something like 'po-klingonski' or 'klingonski
yezik.'  And for all you Nahuatl speakers out there, how about 'Tlinonatl'?

	Just a guess, anyway, 'cause I like to have some minimal input on
these topics.
