Evolutionary System (http://www.evolutionary.net/) makes a spectacularly
fast translation dictionary application called, appropriately, Dictionary.
It comes in both PalmOS and Pocket PC versions, with a Windows program for
creating vocabulary files. It supports both word translations and
collections of entire phrases. It requires a paid registration after a
short trial period.
I maintain my master vocabulary list in an Access database, but I export
the data through the conversion program for regular use on my Palm.

I think that's a very bad idea. There's probably nothing illegal about
someone other than Viacom "publishing" a Klingon word list, but I don't
believe it's worth the potential hassles from putting it to the test.
Having to funnel it through a third party makes updating the dictionary

qIroS wrote a [KLI usage] pIqaD trainer. An ebook creator/reader is useful
for keeping reference material around -- I have TKD's "Useful Klingon
Expressions" appendix, the proverbs and translations from TKW, and the
Fleer/Skybox trading cards. And I use FireViewer to display annotated
pictures from the last few qep'a'mey. :-)
