Technical Writing In Klingon

For when English just doesn't have the nuance or depth of meaning.

A common problem in technical writing is that it often suffers from a lack of precision. My solution is to use Klingon.

       An example would help. And I think you've just given [8th] an erection.

       Why... this could make for a whole new lexikhan.   

       What about Wookiee? They are great with electronics, despite talking in grunts, living in trees, having furry beast hands... let's face it, Star Wars makes zero sense at all.

       Example: yes please. But I must insist on phonetically spelled Klingon, to enhance comprehension.

       I'd have thought Vulcan would be more suited to technical nuancing.

       Vulcanian is actually much more suitable for esoteric philosophy. What you really want is Romulan.

       I thought for sure you were going to say binary.   

       Being so well-connected, the Borg could make excellent translators, travel agents, and telephone operators.

       //Being so well-connected, the Borg could make excellent translators, travel agents, and telephone operators.//   

       In my experience, 30% of travel agents and 100% of telephone operators are already Borg. Try telephoning any American hotel to make a reservation, and you will discover that even once you get through to a human, they're _not_ _actually_ _human_. America - pioneering the deskilling of jobs.

       What language does the Borg use, and why wouldn't it be superior for technical stuff?
Vernon, Oct 16 2016
  

       The Borg understand everything immediately and have no need for writing or explanations. They will not make your flight reservations.
