(Hello there! I am happy to see you here today!)

This is the most entertaining bit of political news that I've seen in a while.

From BBC news: 
Klingon was the chosen language for the Welsh government in its response to queries about UFO sightings at Cardiff Airport.

"Shadow Health Minister Darren Millar had asked for details of UFOs sightings and asked if research would be funded.
A Welsh government spokesman responded with: "jang vIDa je due luq."
The Welsh government statement continued: "'ach ghotvam'e' QI'yaH devolve qaS."
In full it said it translated as: "The minister will reply in due course. However this is a non-devolved matter."
It is believed to be the first time the Welsh government has chosen to communicate in Klingon."

Use the translator at Bing to translate further Klingon communications.
Learn Huttese and Ewok here
Listverse has a few other fictional languages here  
There seem to be a TON of Minion translator apps available, too many to list here.

This was a just-for-fun post since I've been busy this summer and took a writing hiatus after the A to Z Challenge in April.

Have you done anything interesting this summer? Know anyone who has learned a fictional language?   Created a fictional language of your own?


  1. I'm a major geek, so I've been around people who have learned Elvish, though I favor the Dwarven race, myself. I'm a D&D player...

    I can mimic some Star Wars languages but would rather actually learn "real" ones.

  2. :-)! That is why I love Welsh humour.

    Greetings from London.

  3. I've created two languages so far, although there is scope for at least three more that I know of. Yes, I'm a language nut. :-D

  4. It's fun making up new words and sounds. Hope you're all whole again after the gruelling A - Z! Thanks for calling at WEP. It's going to be better than ever. Thanks for tweeting! Halloween will be super fun!
