in french is "bon anniversaire" kind of ordinary:P... in Romanian, trough, is "La multi ani" that's quite unique, right? in other languages? aaaa... in English it's "happy birthday" :D:P that's all I know... good luck;)

Well in Chinese Pinyin/Alphabet, we got 26 words eaxactly the same as English do, but V is used as a different word, and all 26 letters are pronouced totally different from English. And we also have some Pinyin for every work like an English does:) Andy

A great place to go if you want to learn how to say something in another language (though you won't be trying to earn money by doing it on mylot) is to try here http://world.altavista.com/ it's a translator. It's not always 100% perfect but it's a great source. You can even take an entire web page and translate it into another language just by typing in the web address!

I am a Chinese, although I also learned some French, but I haven't learned how to say happy birthday in French yet. Sheng ri kuai le means happy birthday in Chinese.

I speak Malayalam (which is one of the languages in India). In Malayalam, 'Pirannaal aashamsagal' roughly means 'Happy Birthday'. I think in Hindi it is 'Janamdin Mubarak'.

how do you pronounce that? the pirannaal aashamsagal?

That's not the Malayalam script. I wrote it as I pronounce it pi-ra-nnaal aa-sham-sa-gal.
