  1. Nancy Hartevelt Kobrin:

    I am disappointed that you did not add Hebrew but you did present Arabic, Turkish, Persian and Somali. Perhaps next year?

  2. ALI:

    Very sad you didn’t get URDU…. it should be among them all…

    • Transparent Language:

      @ALI We’d love to expand our list with the help of readers! Since there’s no audio, the phonetic spelling might be most helpful for Urdu, especially to see the difference between the two:
      maiN aap say piyar karta hooN (when spoken by a male)
      maiN aap say piyar karti hooN (when spoken by a female)

  3. blueeyedbear:

    In Lithuanian it’s “Aš tave myliu” and I can provide audio

  4. Magda:

    I think that Ti amo would be more natural translation in Italian.

  5. Vivek:

    Hello TL!

    Regarding the Hindi equivalents, the second ‘kartee’ should be written the way ‘kartaa’ is written but with also a curve connecting the ‘taa’ part of it. The curve makes it ‘tee’. What’s written right now is ‘karthi’…which isn’t right. Hope that helps! 🙂

    Vivek

  6. Ana:

    I agree with Magda. “Ti voglio bene” means something like “I care about you” and it has a slightly different meaning than “Ti amo” which means “I love you”.

    • Transparent Language:

      @Ana Thank you both for the correction, we’ve changed it up in the post to best reflect the meaning. 🙂

  7. musikmadchen:

    ‘Ljubim te’ in sLOVEnian!

    • Transparent Language:

      @musikmadchen Oooh thank you for this one! The moderator of this account is about to move to Ljubljana and will be needing this. 🙂
