"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
