With members from over 150(!) countries now, there are bound to be a few that speak more than one lanuage so I thought sharing the local translations of this common phrase might be an interesting way to get to know a little more about different places around the world, and even give you a good fluent opener in the local language :)

"Hi, I am Sam, a traveller from the Netherlands" in DUTCH would be:

"Hoi, ik ben Sam, een reiziger uit Nederland"

Looking forward to seeing some strange alterations to this coming out of the hat

In Danish that would be:

Hej, jeg hedder Solvejg, jeg kommer fra Danmark

Fun idea, Sam, maybe we should add the phonetics to the various language versions as well....

Thought about that too but that might get a little too intense :)

In Norwegian....sorry to any Norwegians out there for my spelling but I am still trying to learn!

"Hei, jeg heter Sam, jeg kommer fra Norge" Unschild, jenta mi er fra Norge.... (Sorry, my girlfriend is from Norway) Norwegians out there, how did I do?

Cheers,

Sam

"Hi, I am Sam, a traveller from the Netherlands" in Filipino would be:

Hi, ako si Sam, isang biyahero mula sa Pilipinas"

Hey there, here goes the translation in portuguese :P

"Olá, eu sou o Sam, um viajante da Holanda".

oh sorry, I was suposed to say "... a traveller from Portugal..."

So, this is it:

"Hi, I am Tiago, a traveller from Portugal"

guess now it's right!!
