How to Say "I Love You" in 165+ Languages

Love Flowers by Raphael Kirchner (1903)
Love Flowers by Raphael Kirchner (1903) | Source

The poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning asked an important question in her Sonnet 43 ("How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..."). I've counted more than 165 ways to say I love you in different languages and I present them below. Scroll down to find out how to express yourself to the world.

A cautionary note: I have not included a pronunciation guide. Before you express your love to your loved one in a language that is not yours, be certain you know the correct pronunciation. If you speak the words using the incorrect inflection in your voice, you might be saying something entirely different, and may create a lot of trouble for yourself.

Sonnet 43 — How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

By Elizabeth Barrett Browning
(3/6/1806 – 6/29/1861)

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.


*My thanks to Martie Coetser Pozyn for the Afrikaans translations

**and to Mohan Kumar (Docmo) for the Dothraki and

***Klingon translations,

****and thanks to Joseph De Cross for the Quechua translation.

Nice job -- although, it's "Filipino." I'm seeing a Valentine's card with all these sayings in it. Voting this Up and Awesome.

alocsin,

Thanks for your very kind words and for pointing out the correct spelling.

The inspiration for my creating the language Hubs stemmed from the fact that Hubbers come from many cultures and live all over the world. If anyone posts translations in their comments I haven't included in this Hub, I'll be happy to update my list.

Wow! To think of all of the various expressions out there to say "I love you"... I admit I only knew the Spanish, Latin, Italian, and French phrases ('Romantic' languages...tee hee).

I like your warning to be careful with pronunciation. You don't want to say something else inadvertantly!

To think at one time I had "How do I love thee?" memorized... :)

Thanks for sharing!

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

ThePracticalMommy,

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

I can't think of a specific example at the moment, but I do know that the same phrase can have several meanings in a given language, depending upon which words are emphasized and the inflection in the speaker's voice.

I'm glad Elizabeth Barrett Browning's sonnet is in the public domain and that I was able to use it.

How fun is this! Different languages are so interesting, and this is definitely one of the most useful phrases to have. Thanks for sharing!


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Vinaya,

I've traveled to more than 25 countries, but, unfortunately, not to Nepal...yet. I studied French in high school. I understand a little bit of Spanish because I live less than two hours from the border with Mexico, and many people from Mexico come to the United States to work. I don't speak Nepali.

I researched travel bookss I have at home for some of the translations. I also looked in the e-books I have on my Amazon Kindle. For other phrases, I used language translation tools I found online.

Have you ever been to the United States?


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

collegatariat,

Thanks for visiting this Hub and the one I wrote about classical music. Thanks, also, for the fan mail. This was a fun article to write. You can see the similarity among several of the languages; the roots of some of the words are the same.

Thanks, Sunshine.

This is the third Hub of this type that I've published. One of the things I like most about HubPages is interacting with people from different parts of the United States, and from different countries, backgrounds, and cultures.

I live in Southern California. A HubPages friend in Virgina suggested I join Facebook, an HP friend in Nepal suggested I join Hub Hoppers, an HP friend in Canada is singing the praises of my opera and ballet Hubs.

Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

thesingernurse,

All the translations are my favorites -- because of what they're saying.

I can pronounce several correctly: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish, and possibly a few more. I'm not saying that I'm conversant in all those languages. It's just that I've heard them enough so I know how they sound.

Love is beautiful in any language. I really enjoyed this! Thank you for putting this together and sharing.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Thanks, Miss Olive. Is there any language that doesn't express this sentiment?


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Up until yesterday, I had translations listed for languages beginning with every letter of the alphabet except Q. While reading some profiles, I noticed that Lord De Cross spoke Quechua. I sent him a message and asked that he provide a translation. Many thanks, Lord. I added Quechua to my list this morning.

(Quechua is the name of a people of the central Andes of South America and their language.)

If anyone knows how to say "I love you" in a language not on my list, please post the translation with your comment. I'll update my Hub and include your addition to the list.

Man from Modesto 4 years ago from Kiev, Ukraine (formerly Modesto, California)

Well, my wife is Ukrainian. We use the Russian "Ya Tibiya Leubleu" for I love you. I thought I would attempt the Ukrainian version, which I mis-remembered slightly. I said:

"Ya Tibiya Kakhayo."

This version, apparently, means "I poop on you." Thank God for understanding wives.

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Did you read Veronica Farkas's comment? She's going to write some of the translations on her hand. You could try that with the Ukrainian translation.

You have missed off the 'you' in your welsh translation. For that version of 'I love you' it should read "Rwy'n dy garu di" (pronounced Roo-een dee gar-ee dee)

Other than that - I enjoyed reading this! Voted up! Side note: if you want to call someone the pet name 'love' in welsh it is "cariad" A really different hub that I thoroughly enjoyed. Diolch!

melbel profile image

melbel 4 years ago from New Buffalo, Michigan

Really interesting hub! Kocham ciebie (Polish) is a bit kind of archaic/formal, so it's mostly kocham ci?, pronounced like KOH-hahm chyeh. And then if someone says this to you and you love them back, you say, "Ja ciebie the?" which is like saying "I love you, too" which is pronounced like, "Yah CHYEH-byeh TESH."

Awesome hub, thanks!

Okay Daisy, how could you leave out the Jamaican? Just kidding, Jamaica's primary language is English but we do have our own dialect and slangy way of saying I love you. Now when a guy says, "Baby, mi check fi yuh", he is basically saying "I love you".


Daisy Mariposa profile image

It's nice to "see" you again. One of the things I like best about HubPages is the interaction between people from so many countries.

May I recommend that you read the interview which my friend Vinaya Ghimire from Kathmandu, Nepal did with your countrywoman, Raci Niwa? ...

Daisy....all I can say is, "WOW"....and I think WOW means the same everywhere! You've included them all, I think. My sister and I were fortunate to be exposed to both Italian and Ukranian languages, from our grandparents, growing up. Not fluently, but certainly enough to muddle through a conversation.

I studied Spanish for years also, so I can get by with that as well.

It's nice to have a 2nd and 3rd. language, but you know, if you don't use it often enough, you can begin to lose the knack too.

I love this hub.....very creaive, Daisy!

Daisy Mariposa 4 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Paula,

Thanks for reading and commenting in another of my articles. This hub was a fun one to write.

You're correct about speaking other languages. If one's second or third language isn't something that's used frequently, pronunciations can be forgotten. This can get you into a lot of trouble...you'll be thinking you're saying one thing, and you'll actually be saying something vastly different.

This is great, Daisy. I will refer to your hub if I get a Maori lover. hahah

As for Hungarian, we usually just say 'Szeretlek' and 'Szeretlek téged' is sort of an answer as in 'Én is szeretlek téged.' which means I love you, too.

KDuBarry03 4 years ago

wow now this was definitely very interesting! I also noticed how some languages have different phrases for what you say to mena dn what you say to women. Some languages only have gender-based words (unlike English, where 'it' can be genderless). I think this is pretty interesting! I'm gonna see how these words are pronounced phonemically :)

Great Hub, Daisy! Voted up and away!

Thanks so much for reading my list and commenting. With some languages, the same phrase can mean something different if a different emphasis is placed on the words.

Be careful if you try some of the phrases on a person who speaks the given language. You might get into big trouble!

As if the 165 ways to say I love you wasn't enough to delight our minds you offer up one of my favorite sonnets ( It inspired me to write one ( Its here in the hubs called' My language flees me!') Thansk for the research and the wonderfully creative idea for this hub- was this a Valentine's day treat?

Since 'Game of Thrones' is my current favourite series of books and TV show I thought I could add a 166th not strictly I love you but the closest Dothraki's come to expressing this sentiment!.

In Dothraki language ' Yer jalan atthirari anni' means 'you are the moon of my life'

This turned out to be a very inspiring hub, Daisy. I got curious about what "I love you" sounds like in Inuit, but I was not able to find a video. Instead, I found a video of Inuit throat singing. Totally fascinating!

One mark of a good article is that it stimulates your curiosity while challenging your understanding. That's what this one did. Now I'm off to listen to more throat singing and learn more about its history and mechanics. Up, interesting, useful. :)

Yes Daisy, though not very fluent in one of them (Telugu) but I can manage very well and get my point across to anyone speaking that language.

Hindi is India's national language so most of the Indians know it. My mother tongue is Tamil. My husband's mother tongue is Malayalam, so I get to speak both the languages well.

Telugu is the language that I learned when I had to work in a State away from mine for a while. Hope I didn't bore you with these details. Learning a new language is fun.

CrisSp 4 years ago from Sky Is The Limit Adventure

Hi Daisy,

Great hub! Though I noticed you have "Pandacan: Syota na kita"--FYI, Pandacan is a district in Manila, Philippines and the term "syota na kita" doesn't mean I love you. "Syota na kita" is a gangster term or slang for Manilleno's which means "You're my girlfriend/boyfriend now." -- Funny, how foreign words could be translated in any other ways. Since Pandacan is part of Manila, the tagalog (Filipino) version of I love you - "mahal kita" applies and is the only correct way to say it.

I still would love to share your hub and spread the love.

Peace and love to you~

Good stuff to read and wonderful hub too. I just want to correct you on something - Bangla and Bengali is practically the same official language spoken in Bangladesh. It's just the two terms is used differently in many countries of the world. So the correct translation is 'ami tumake bhalo bhashi' as you've already stated in one of them above. That phrase is also understood in Calcutta, India where Bengali is also spoken but in another dialect. Hope that helps and thanks for sharing the article.

jayneedoe,

Welcome to HubPages. It's nice to meet you.

As I mentioned at the beginning of my article, "A cautionary note: I have not included a pronunciation guide. Before you utter I love you to your loved one in a language that is not your primary language, be certain you know the correct pronunciation. If you speak the words using the incorrect inflection in your voice, you might be saying something entirely different, and will create a lot of trouble for yourself."

If there is any language for which you are interested in learning the correct pronunciation, inflection, and tone, you can search the Internet and will probably find the relevant audio file. It's beyond the scope of my article to include upwards of 165 audio files.

It makes me so happy to see Hungarian and Romanian included in the list. It is very important to be polite in Hungarian and Romanian. So to say thank you in Romanian it would be "Mulţumesc" pronounced as mool-tzoo-MESK. To say thank you in Hungarian it would be köszönöm pronunced as kur-sur-nurm.

Yeah... well, of course I add a little twist on my romancing other than just say these words, but this Hub is so useful to get one or two out from time to time.

It shows I'm thoughtful of her, and I am - after all I keep coming here to fetch them eh... :D

I don't like Bruno Mars though... but it was well thought...

It would be a lovely ambition to learn all of these by heart and rattle them off in any order to your partner one romantic evening - after a few glasses of red wine perhaps.

The Yiddish i love you is quite close to the dutch I notice. My fave is the Telegu, which is beautiful natural tongue-twister.

Daisy. Thanks for the work put into this extensive list of 'I love you'. Ms. Browning's sonnet was also such a refreshing read. I do not know why they do not inclyude her in the school books in India. We are not given much scope to get to know the expressions and feelings of the women romantics. Unfortunate. I want to share the sonnet with my friends too.

Just a little word- I think in collecting there might be slight mistakes - as you have indicated, in pronunciation. Everyone reading this if he/she knows a language should make the necessary corrections. I am a Bengalee..and so must say, there is only one alphabet wrong here..in Bangla we say..: ""Aamee tuma ke bhalo baashi"..

Daisy Mariposa: VERY INTERESTING!!! :) loved it! There were languages in here that I never heard of...and its cool you included some Native American too :) I knew how to say I love you in french,spainish,Italian and Taglog but the others clueless!! Another one I wanted to add was if you just wanted to say the word love in Hebrew I think it is just Ahava...like the dead sea salt products. Thank you for such a fun and comprehensive list!! Happy Valentine's Day.

This anniversary is particularly special because this is the first we actually get to spend together! I will have to write a few of these down, and give them a try over dinner tonight.

Happy to see my mother tongue Tamil (South Indians language) is also featured in this list. Tamil is one of the ancient language in the world that has a very long history, for that we have to traverse 3000 years ago. Thank you Daisy for the great list on eternal thing Love.

It's nice to "see" you again. Thanks for reading the translations and adding your comment. As long as my readers pronounce the translations correctly, they won't have any problems. Sometimes, if the wrong tone of voice or inflection is used, a phrase can mean something different. The same spelling can have different a meaning, according to the way the phrase is pronounced.
