Tal, this is really interesting. I feel I can't really give useful feedback as I don't know as much of the language but from what I can tell it appears really thought out.

* - changed the meaning of the canon word (sorry!!) because it's original meaning didn't really fit the other words in the dictionary
can or ca' is mostly used for indicating time or season, so can'gal could be translated as "season bird", not "starfighter" as it was.
"Unknown day" for "tomorrow" doesn’t really fit into mandalorian culture, warriors who don’t plan at least a day ahead don’t survive for millenia. So the new meaning, "day after tomorrow", can mean either exactly next day after tomorrow or any other day in the future.

Is there ever really a reason to use bac as a conjuntion?

Tug' is a handy one, I'd say.

While looking through your list, I wasn't able to find many words related to my occupation (electrician), and came up with a few that I think might work.

Sapan'briik [ sah-PAHN-breek] - wire (lit. electricity thread)
Sapan'borar [sah-PAHN-boh-RAHR] - electrician (lit. electricity job)
Nynir ni daab, ni n'akaanir; Jurkadir ner vode, bal kyr'am nu'ven'cabuor gar teh ni a'den.

Vor entye for this work; it's come in very handy many times so far, and I'm sure will continue to.

Have you considered hosting this spreadsheet in Google Sheets instead of/in addition to Excel?

Vor'e, vod.

Thought about google docs, but decided against it. First, i need to be online to work on it and thats not always possible. Second, i dont like google, cause ive lost quite a number of documents thanks to google drives server fail. Third, google sheet doesnt allow to use that many functions, or use your own fonts
