When translating from one language to another there are always some
words and expressions for which there exists no exact equivalents. It
is impossible to produce an exact translation of Alice's Adventures in
Wonderland in any language. Whilst with Klingon there may be more of
these than most other languages translation possible, through no
commercially profitable on this planet.
