hey fellow craftsters! for valentine's day this year I'm going to make my boyfriend something with "I love you" written on in it in many different languages. I know Je t'adore, but that's about as far as my language skills go. Smiley Is there somewhere I can go to find more or do you guys know lots of them? Thanks for your help!!

That site is cool, but . . .  if you use the korean, it would be better to write it as it actually is written.  That site is perhaps useful for languages that share the same alphabet, but for the other langauages that have a different alaphet, you would never see "I love you" written like that.  That said I would stick with this pronounciation (sah rang hae yo).  they list "rang" as an 'l' sound which isn't wrong entirely, the sound is more of an r/l sound.  Koreans, like the Japanese don't differentiate between the two sounds so sometimes it sound like a combo of both.  Here's the proper spelling.  Each group of letters corresponds with a sound.  Have fun with your bf's card.

The Hebrew version there is not very accurate either (actually translates to "I love her", which is not what you want to say, I think.. Smiley)

So, if it's a guy telling a girl: Ani ohev otach
Girl telling guy:Ani ohevet otcha

and to be politically correct -
Guy telling guy: Ani ohev otacha
Girl telling girl: Ani ohevet otach

Of course there's the whole Hebrew letters thing, but I won't get you into that..

Don't forget about sign language!  It wouldn't be spelled out letter by letter like it is on the site, you should use the sign for it if you're up for drawing it or stealing it off the internet somewhere.  But you make an "L" with your index finger and thumb, and stick up your pinky, too.
