To establish a consistent dating system . . .
One Klingon Year (1 DIS) = 401.775 Terran Days = 344 Klingon Days + 1 Leap Day every 3 Years
One Klingon Day (sunrise to sunrise, 1 jaj) = 28 Terran Hours = 20 Klingon Hours
One Klingon Hour (1 rep) = 1.4 Terran Hours = 84 Terran Minutes

Imperial Date = (Terran Date - 799) / 1.1 : jaj = fractions x 344
