At the end of "Broken Bow", Archer asks his translator what the Klingon said
and she says "you don't want to know"---well, I would like to know!  (unless
they just had the actor speak gibberish, but since Klingon is an invented
language that's pretty well established, I doubt it.  Anyone here speak
Klingon?  What did he say?
Thanks.

I always considered it a "dialect" of Klingon. The words were brute force translated one at a time using the word lists at the back of the old Klingon Dictionary Book. Translated that way it roughly means:
"I will not kill you today, Boy."
