Is there a Klingon equivalent to "Amen"?

Off the top of my head, I might say bIlughchu' "you're completely right".

You might also consider wa' DoS wIqIp. ("We hit one target."), meaning something like "We agree." I like to think of this as the Klingon equivalent of "Word!", though I suppose "We're on the same page." may be a more appropriate translation.

Why it cannot be "I will need a vacation"?

It can. We just had not added that option in. It should be accepted now.

wouldn't "I need to have a vacation" be equally acceptable?

I do not use the term "have a vacation" and I don't think I've heard it before, but I wouldn't be surprised if there were English speakers that do use it. I don't see any potential for confusion and it's clear that someone using that phrase has understood the Klingon. I'll add it to the accepted translations.
