Here's a big collection of different ways to say "Thank you" from all over the world:

"Wiyarrparlunpaju-yungu"!

That's Warlpiri for thank you.. so now next time you're in the central desert region in Australia, you can impress the locals.. :)

Is Swahili there? It's an important language in southern Africa.

Hey,thanks,ev! I bet Ken Dunn will be asking next how they say 'Thank-You' in Nagorno Karabakh!!/???
One way is just to stick your big thumb up in the air and smile broadly: that's pretty international,eh?

'Thank You' in Swahili,is of course 'Asante'. 'Thank you very much' is 'Asante sana'.

Of course.. I mean, who doesn't know that??

By the way I think you'll find that sticking your big thumb up doesn't necessarily mean 'Thank you' everywhere.. I've heard of other meanings.. :O

Yes, ev, me too, but I'm far too shy & modest to mention them here....btw, is the waggling-noses greeting just a UK myth, or does it happen?

And now, I will attempt to match the 465 ways to say thank you, but my list will all be in English...

Thank you
I'm most grateful
I owe you one
You da man!
You are a gentleman
I appreciate that
Your mother taught you well
I'll get the next one
I'm indebted to you


OK. I came up a few short. But you did brighten my day with that post, ev.

Grateful Trekker

I just stumbled upon this online free translator. I THINK, I HOPE that it's not half bad!

Trying to learn a few German words or phrases a day, in preparation to visit my son after he's transferred there.

Try these two, Cori. I've been learning German for a few months but it will take me years to be able to converse. Both these dictionaries offer some pronunciations and show ways the word you request is commonly used.

Versuchen Sie, diese zwei, Cori. Ich habe Deutsch lernen für ein paar Monate, aber es wird mir Jahr zu können, Converse. Beide Wörterbücher bieten einige Aussprachen und zeigen, wie Sie das Wort Antrag wird allgemein verwendet.

http://dict.leo.org/ende?lang=en&;lp=ende&search=

I'll try the translator you have found. It will all help.

Ich werde versuchen die Übersetzer haben Sie gefunden. Es wird allen helfen.

Danke schÖn, Cori. Dies ist ein sehr einfach zu verwenden Übersetzer! Ich muss lernen zu sprechen, wie ich es nicht wollen müssen Sie eine Online-Computer zu haben, ein Gespräch mit jemandem, so dass ich durch meine schleifen Übersetzungen mit einer der Wörterbücher Ich habe die Links zu.
