Well.. This thread is getting a bit old, but I haven't said my share yet..
so.... In a fine manner I will try to say it in swedish (which shouldn't be so hard because that's where I'm from!! )
- English "Hi, my name is Ebbe, a traveller from Sweden"
- Swedish "Hej, jag heter Ebbe, en resenär från Sverige"
- English "Hi"
- Swedish "Hej" OR "Tjena (more youngster-talk)" OR "Hejsan (more formal )"
some more funny phrases..
- English "I am seventeen years old"
- Swedish "Jag är sjutton år gammal"
Olá, sou a Isabel, uma viajante de Portugal !!(Hi, I am Blizy, a traveller from Portugal)
Dia Dhuit, Is mise Evelyn, taistealai as Eire (in Irish)
Hi (God be with you), I'm Evelyn, a traveller from Ireland"
Since I never know what to answer at the question "where are you from?" (my place of birth, where I grew up, or where I am living at the moment? ), I will say "...and I live in Canada", ok!?
French: Salut, je m'appelle Noelia et j'habite au Canada.
English : Hi, my name is Noelia and I live in Canada.
Espanol/castellano: Hola, me llamo Noelia y vivo en Canada.
Deutsch/German: Hallo! I heisse Noelia und komm aus Kanada (na ja, da wohne ich, aber ich bin argentinierin )
Italiano: Ciao, mi chiamo Noelia e vivo in Canada!
Uhm,well someone has already said it but I wanted to post too so here we go once more...

Haven't studied that language much yet so haven't got a clue what traveller is in tahitian...
Quoting Sam I Am
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
