Oh yes, and those subtitles can be the complete opposite sometimes, 
without being wrong for the story.

I noticed something similar to this lately while watching Star Trek with 
subtitles. It wasn't a Klingon scene, but I'll use it for my example:

- "Would you mind helping me?" {choboQqang'a'?}
- "No." {HIja'}

See the problem?
