Would "difficult" be acceptable here? A book is not "hard" like a rock, but "complex" is vague, too.

The "best" translation has an option of "difficult" or "complex".

Thank you. I was hoping that you would say that.

It gives the hints for "why" instead of "difficult", as mentioned for "Qatlh DIvI' Hol". Screenshot:

Yes. The software can't differentiate a capital Q from a lower case q when looking up the hints.
