      In June 2009 we placed four peace poles in front of the Joggins United Church, it total we have printed PEACE in 50 languages. The youth at the River Hebert High School made and designed the signs. They look great and many tourists stop to take pictures and admire the children's work. Pam

      howbout the most famous Indian languages - Sanskrit, Hindi and Telugu. Adding them is no hurdle to the patient becoz in all those the word for peace is the same - "SHANTI"

      also in the above list there is a small correction, for Gujarati = Shanti Bengali

      Gujarati is an Indian language in which also Shanti means peace and Bengali is the name of another language spoken in West-Bengal(calcutta), its not equal to peace as mentioned, correct that.

      Very interesting. The Maltese: Pa?i should be written with a dot on the C and reads 'Pah-chee'. I have a video on Hubpages on how to pronounce the Maltese Alphabet http://hubpages.com/hub/Maltese-Learning-the-Langu...

      LMFAO on ramaraobobby's comment :

      "howbout the most famous Indian languages - Sanskrit, Hindi and Telugu."

      U must be the guy who is fighting for Telengana....Learn to be Indian "not Telugu".

      In albanian the correct is just "PAQE" not "LA PAQE". There is no propisition of "LA" in albanian.

      More than a billion, or over sixth of the world’s population live in India; and it certainly deserves a mention in your commendable collection. The word for peace in Hindi is “Shanti”.

      Good work. I guess that where the final word in the line is another language the implication is that the same word is used in that language?

      For example:

      Creole = Lapé Haitian

      Dutch = Vrede Afrikaans

      Gaelic = Fois Scots

      Gujarati = Shanti Bengali

      Norwegian = Fred Danish

      Portuguese = A Paz Galician

      Romanian = La Pace Italian
