[tlhIngan Hol] Bing Translator pIqaD support...

Before anybody scolds me for using Bing Translator, I was only using it as a convenient way to convert text into Unicode pIqaD on computers/devices that didn’t already have an appropriate pIqaD input method installed.

Anyway, it seems I can’t do that anymore, since it looks like Bing Translator underwent a redesign recently (within the past few weeks it seems), and now only supports “Klingon” and not “Klingon (pIqaD)”. wejpuH.

I whipped up a three-way transliterator as a replacement. It has the added benefit of being a self-contained HTML file, so you can keep a copy on your computer and use it without network access. It should be fairly OS/browser agnostic, but let me know if you run into any problems. I’ll probably style it (including adding a web font so you don’t have to have a pIqaD font installed) later. If you miss being able to use Bing Translator for a quick pIqaD transliteration, a live version of my “universal transliterator" is here:
