[tlhIngan Hol] why we shouldn't do transcriptions

Assume that someone translating the bible transliterates..

The reader reads a transliteration, but because it's not a transliteration
of a famous name/place, he can't understand what the translator talks about.

How in the name of holy glorious hell, can then he able to understand ?
What will he google ? The jay' transliteration ? Or would the translator
expect him to open a non-klingon bible, go to *that* specific line trying
to sort this out ?

If someone reads "sidon", he *can* google "sidon" and find what and where
it is. But its' transliteration ? Yeah, good luck with that.

Try it, and tell me how it goes..
