Finally, the Klingon Language is at your fingertips! Download boQwI' to your primitive Terran portable computational device and you will be able to search through its word database, analyze Klingon sentences, and brush up on your etiquette for the big QI'lop celebration.

tlhIngan Hol boQwI' / Klingon Language Assistant is a lexicon dictionary, canon search tool, and grammar analyzer for the Klingon language ({tlhIngan Hol}) devised by Marc Okrand for Star Trek's warrior race. It can parse Klingon grammar and serve as an aid in Klingon-to-English translation. You can also view the Klingon Word of the Day on your Today screen by enabling the included "Klingon Word of the Day" widget.

boQwI' is NOT a general-purpose English-to-Klingon translator. You will need to know some Klingon already to make use of it for that purpose. If you're looking for a general-purpose English-to-Klingon translator (or vice versa), your best bet is to time travel to the 23rd century and bring back a Universal Translator.

Works on an M1 iMac

boQwI' is a great resource for anyone interested in learning the Klingon language. I've used it for years on my iPhone and now I can use it on my iMac as well. The App Store says it is not verified for Macs, but I can verify, it's working fine on a Mac.
It's a bidirectional dictionary with reference charts for verb prefixes and verb and noun suffixes, useful phrases, canon sources, etc. No terran should be caught without it.

Excellent resource

Great app to help learn tlhIngan Hol. Provides word breakdown and English to Klingon and Klingon to English translation. Explains noun and verb suffixes and prefixes. A must have for the Klingon language student.
