Klingon Shakespeare Restoration Project

This project takes its cue from a throwaway line in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. In this movie, a Klingon character barks out a line of Klingon for "to be or not to be" (taH pagh taHbe'), and remarks that one cannot appreciate Shakespeare without hearing it in the original Klingon. The KLI couldn't possibly pass up an opening like that, and so has a project to "restore" works of Shakespeare back to the original Klingon text, as it were. From this flowed our translations of Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing as well as several Sonnets translated by Nick Nicholas. [1]


Midsummer Night's Dream

Hamlet

Much Ado About Nothing

[2] Sonnets


Has anyone translated...
