REDMOND, Wash., May 15 (UPI) -- U.S. software giant Microsoft has added "Klingon" to its Bing translator to celebrate this week's release of "Star Trek: Into Darkness."

The search engine partnered with Marc Okrand, the creator of the fictional language, to add the alien tongue to the translation tool, The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.

Selecting Klingon on Bing causes a line to pop up indicating partnerships with Paramount and the non-profit Klingon Language Institute.
