"Welcome" in Nine Languages

Inspired by the welcome sign in the Museum of Modern Art's lobby, it behooves me to share the text of "Welcome" in nine languages.

Who doesn't like "Welcome" signs in multiple languages? I noticed the entrance sign to MoMA's film lobby - It read welcome in several languages and cheery invitation as well: "this way to art." I'm thinking of copying it and posting a similar sign on my classroom door.

So here is the text from the MoMA sign with translations (in machine-friendly rendering):


Willkommen - German


ようこそ - Japanese


Bienvenue - French


Benvenuto - Italian


And in English - Welcome, this way to art 


欢迎 - Chinese (Simplified), Shanghainese


Spanish - Bienvenido


Cantonese - 歡迎


Bem-vindo - Portuguese


환영합니다 - Korean
