    The Hive Workshop is a very diverse multi-cultural / multi lingual community. Nearly all users are fairly proficient in the practice and use of the English language: as in real life, English often unites people from around the globe. It never ceases to amaze me just how well so many people can think and communicate so well in multiple languages.

    This thread is designed for each of us to teach one another some basic phrases in our own language(s) so that we can expand our horizons, learn, and become better acquainted. I will post in some of the very basic words and phrases that I know; I'll be grateful if you guys can teach me others.


    Phrase /
    Word
    Danish En français German Italian Russian Spanish

    hello /
    good day
    hej /
    goddag
    bonjour Guten Tag ciao /
    buongiorno
    hola

    goodbye /
    good night
    farvel /
    godnat
    au revoir /
    bon soir
    guten abend ciao /
    arrivederci /
    buonanotte
    adios

    friend ven ami(e) /

    freund amico/a drug amigo

    peace fred paix Frieden pace mir paz

    love kærlighed Amour liebe amore amor

    please ??? s'il vous plait bitte per favore por favor

    thanks tak merci danke grazie spasibo gracias


    welcome velkommen bienvenue willkommen benvenuto/a bienvenido

    help hjælp aider hilfe Aiuto ayudar


    The information is very incomplete. As everyone contributes their own language(s) to this thread, I should be able to make it more helpful and useful.

    As the table indicates, help is needed: especially with languages not presently included.

    In german it is danke not danka ;)

    Also Hello is plain Hallo

    All in all this is a good Idea but i think this will help understanding german better if you can speak english and know what the word is you want to translated:
    http://dict.leo.org/

    This site is german but it can translate most words from english to german and is a realy great side that helped me often and good.
    Also i think there is a france version but i think that one is german - france.
    The site also got a big board where you can ask things.

    Goodbye/Goodnight Nasvidenje/Lahko noč
    Friend Prijatelj
    Peace Mir
    Love Ljubezen
    Please Prosim
    Thanks Hvala
    Welcome Dobrodošel

    All I know in Russian is that "Da" means "Yes"... I know a bit of Japanese too;

    (please note spelling may not be correct)
    Ichi - One
    Ni - Two
    San - Three
    Shi - Four
    Gou - Five
    Loku - Six
    Shichi - Seven
    Hachi - Eight
    Ku - Nine
    Ju - Ten
    Taiko - Drum
    O'Daiko - Whatever drum on stage is biggest (or tied for biggest)
    Shime - Small drum resembling one found on a typical rock-band-drum-set (dunno if Kettledrum is the word I'm looking for to describe it or not...)
    Matsuri - Festival
    Hatchimake - Head-band
    Don - Big (I think)
    Domo Arigato - Thank you
    Kamikaze - Divine Wind or God-Wind (Suicide Attack (also called a Banzai Charge))

    Huh, looks like you're right... sorry, I'll change it, always thought it literally meant "Suicide Attack" because that's how you usually see it used.

    I think good day in German is not correct. It's something like gouten mourgen or something, but don't put it in, I don't know how to spell it correctly.
