Type Klingonese With Ease - Klingonese Font!

Published:
2K Views

Description

Let me first say that the Klingon language is nothing like the English language. It's somewhat similar, but there are several characters that could go either way when making a font, such as the ng. So I did my best to emulate/translate what a Klingon language would be towards English. I used the actual Klingon alphabet as a reference point, but took a few liberties here and there. If you write a sentence or whatever out in English, it probably wouldn't make much sense to a Klingon. If you were to write a sentence in Klingon, it might be reminiscent of Uhura trying to fake Klingonese lol. The font has upper and lowercase letters. Most of the lowercase letters are simply smaller scaled versions of the upper case letters. A few of the lowercase letters are some of the remaining tones such as the ng which would be lowercase n. Font created with Fontlogic 6. I do realize now there are other Klingonese fonts available on the internet. There are none others on deviantart, and I have made this myself. If you download mine, and compare it with any other one you will see that this one is unique. It is of course, up to you which one you chose to use. I hope you enjoy!
