Official Klingon Dictionary Software Released In Conjunction With Latest Star Trek Movie

Chicago, IL (PressExposure) May 08, 2009 -- Language software developer engaged by Simon & Schuster for launch of Star Trek-related iPhone Apps

Ultralingua, Inc., based in Minneapolis, has just produced an electronic version of Simon & Schuster’s popular Klingon Dictionary and Conversational Klingon (a recorded tutorial narrated by actor Michael Dorn, who was a featured character on multiple Star Trek® TV series). There is also a phrase book mimicking the common travelers’ tool, although in this case the phrases are for use by “Terrans” (Earthlings) planning a visit to the fictional world of Kronos, where Klingons live and vice versa. Ultralingua has dominated iPhone®/iPod Touch® downloads of dictionary software with a combination of expertise in both linguistics and software development. Typical ratings of the applications are in the range of 4-5 stars out of 5 by users.

The company was founded in 1997 and has since grown from a 2-person venture to employ more than a dozen contract and full time employees, primarily in the roles of lexicography & software development. Products include multi-lingual spelling and grammar checkers, travelers and business phrasebooks and a variety of other software facilitating language and translation.

In addition to software for the iPhone®, Ultralingua produces applications for Macintosh, Windows and several smartphones, such as the Palm and Widows Mobile platforms (Blackberry coming soon). It’s the iPhone®, however, with its popularity among students and travelers that has made the company boom.

Expected release dates for the Klingon products are: May 4: The Klingon Language Suite for iPhone® & iPod Touch® May 12: The Klingon Dictionary for Macintosh Computers May 15: The Klingon Dictionary for Windows (XP & Vista)* * This is the debut for Ultralingua’s most up-to-date Windows platform.
