Bing allows you to ‘mugh’ (aka translate) into Klingon
In what will come as a delight to Trekkies across the galaxy, Bing has paired up with the Star Trek franchise to offer translation into Klingon.
“Star Trek Into Darkness” is slated for release this week and is the second film in the franchise directed by “Lost” darling J.J. Abrams. A quick look at Rotten Tomatoes tells us you may be speaking more Klingon in the near future: reviews are at 87 percent fresh.
Genius marketing trick? We’ll find out this weekend.
Bonus points if you can guess (without using the translator) which post of ours from today is translated below:
