News feed and blog reading in the warrior tongue. Those dirty humans.
Bloglines, a free online service for searching, subscribing, publishing and sharing news feeds and blogs, has opened the doors of its service to audiences beyond its solar system with a new translation in Klingon, the galaxy's fastest-spreading invented language.
"The custom of sharing grand stories of conquest and battle has a long standing history among the Klingon people," said Mark Fletcher, founder of Bloglines. "Blogging is simply an easy way to continue the tradition while stuck in deep space, away from your family. We feel that presenting Bloglines in the Warrior Tongue was long overdue."
Klingon marks the eighth language translation for Bloglines, joining Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese and Spanish. To navigate Bloglines in Klingon, simply select the language from the menu on the left hand side of the Bloglines home page.
To find out more about the Klingon language, visit http://www.kli.org/ or check with your local Klingon embassy.
