Say Welcome in all languages!
« on: November 27, 2008, 07:30:13 PM »
That's a variant...  :yes:

I meant to find how is, for example, "welcome" said and correctly spelled in different languages. I wrote it in the three languages that I fairly know. :-[

There are thousands of languages, dialects, slangs, etc. that would make the search a very intricate task and not so easy to find, even using Internet. Indian an natives of all around the world are accepted.  Of course, the most known languages will be the first and easier,  but when they finish Do you know how to said it in  Sahiri, Sioux, Papua, Thai ??    >:D

But  there is a problem: how to write Arab, for example, on the forum? ?   ???

Ok.  Now I understand.
We can chanqe the toplc to fit.

SMF forum has many language folders so making characters for specific languages is supported, if you have chosen that language four your keyboard. Otherwise, I don't know.

Look what I found with the word "hello":

"Have you ever stopped to consider how many people are saying "hello" to each other today and in how many different languages? If you wanted to say "hello" to everyone on the planet, you would have to learn at least 2,796 languages and say "hello" to at least 6,500,000,000 (six and a half thousand million) people, (or six and a half billion, in numbers used in the US). Here are some of the ways of saying "hello" around the world."
