The Languages of Love

Love is international, so here are more than 400 ways to say that one, all important, phrase: I love you500彩票网安全下载. From the Eskimo language of Aleut (fewer than 300 speakers left) to Zulu (tens of millions of speakers but a small internet footprint), this collection shows the richness and diversity of human communication – and why it’s important to preserve our languages. After all, what more basic human need could there be, than to be able to say “I love you500彩票网安全下载” and be understood?

How to say I love you500彩票网安全下载 in different langaugesCrowd-Sourcing “I Love You” in Different Languages

Many sources came together to create what I believe is the world’s most extensive crowd-sourced collection:

  • the translators, post-editors and international staff
  • our partner translation companies in
  • (TWB), a non-profit founded by Lexcelera
  • the fine you500彩票网安全下载ng translators working out of the in Nairobi, Kenya
  • the on Facebook
  • internet
  • .

Not all the languages below are real languages. Some are invented: including two Elvish languages from and one angel dialect.

This is a work in progress. Discrepancies in spelling may be due to a lack of standardization, or an alternate system of transliteration. Or it could, quite simply, be an error. Leave you500彩票网安全下载r comments below if you500彩票网安全下载 have corrections to suggest, or language translations you500彩票网安全下载 would like to add. If you500彩票网安全下载’re interested in knowing more about the languages themselves, each name links to a Wikipedia page.
