I thought the two were interchangeable... like Slovakian.

Well not literally everyone however if that’s what happens I’ll be somewhat disappointed because I’m focusing on Czech more than Klingon overall.

Are there any indications when could Czech go out of beta?

First, I have no idea when Czech will be released and I have no way to influence that. Below is my personal view, not a view of any other contributor.

Well, Klingon is an artificial language (I don't know any of it), it is easy to create some rules which you can follow (Even if they are complicated! - Like Latin, complicated, but very regular. But for Klingon I don't know whther they allow the intentionally ungrammatical layers of the language or not.) and when something is unclear you just take the rule and you know immediately if something is or is not clear.

Here we often have to follow are guts to see what still is correct and what is not. The students don't have these feeling developed so well yet and hence we receive a large number of reports of translations that "should have been accepted.". These reports are often wrong, but sometimes correct.

Also there are so many possible translations in Czech that it is easy to miss one. And then we have reports we have to deal with.

So in the end I think it is quite normal that an artificial language is released sooner than a complex natural language.

please keep in mind that the timing of the mobile release is all about duo's priorities and preferences. if they feel an early mobile release of klingon is to their advantage, an early mobile release they will make. none on the czech team are losing sleep over it. nobody else should be either.

It was just a joke. Look FWD to the Czech release when it happens.
