"I love you" in Dutch means "Ik hou van jouw" though I don't know if there are other ways to say that phrase ;)

don't know if anyone has put this, but here is Simplified Mandarin Chinese

Thank You- xièxie 谢谢 (she-eh she-eh make sure it's she not sheh)

Your Welcome- bú kèqi 不客气 (also could be said bú xiè 不谢) (boo she-eh)

I Love You-wǒ ài nǐ 我爱你 (wo eye nee)

okay so pay attention to the marks above the words, those represent tones, they are pretty easy to understand when you learn them. xiè has a falling tone so your voice drops (personally those are the easiest to say) bú is said like our questions, we always raise our voice to signify it was a question we said. wǒ is a mixture of both the falling and rising tone, you go down then up. (hope that was a good explanation, not really good at explaining things) here's a good site to here how they sound http://www.standardmandarin.com/chinesephrases

Thank You - köszönöm (kur-sur-nurm)
You're Welcome - szívesen (see-vesh-en)
I Love You - szeretlek (seh-ret-lek)

The hungarian 'ö' letter is the same with german, swedish, finnish and türkish 'ö' or danish and norwegian 'ø'. So, the pronunciation in these languages is kö-sö-nöm or kø-sø-nøm.

Added the pronounciations ~ Blai

Added your translation for "I Love You" to the first post. :)

I noticed there's a slight difference between your translation for "Thank You" and the one in the opening post:
Filipino = "Salamat" ("Maraming salamat" if you want to say "Thank you very much" or the more literal "Thanks a lot/Many thanks")
Does adding "po" give a slightly different meaning?

@igtg: po/ho is a sort of determiner. it indicates respect to the person being talked to who is senior either by years or by level .... just like -san,-chan, and -sama is to nihongo..only that po is a syntactically added to clauses/sentences rather than to the proper names.

and on the sidenote, po is a used only by Tagalogs, a regional group of Filipinos residing mainly in Northern Philippines(esp. Manila) speaking Tagalog, which is constitutionally recognized as the official Language of the Philippines(naturally, only because the Capital city is in Northern part of this country). Whereas Hiligaynon is Filipino too, its more like the dialect spoken by Ilonggos of Central Philippines. We dont use "po", but use the word salamat for thanks as well, so we can safely say "po" is a lingual form of respect to use regionalwise, especially when speaking the Official Filipino language(or Tagalog, in the truest sense).

sometimes, po can be used interjectively---like, "Po?!!!" and "Po?" which can mean "Really?!" and "Yes?" respectively.. One might hear Tagalogs saying "Opo/Oho"...which sensibly means affirmation (Yes)

Filipino as language and Filipinos as people is as complex as our geography, that we are sort of having identity and cultural problems :darn

Thanks a lot for the very informative explanation, duchess! I'll add "Maraming Salamat po" to the first post, specifying that it is the Tagalong variation. :)

Some variants for German:

Thanks:
Vielen Dank (this can be seen as a little more formal way of "Danke". Let's say it's never wrong - it's formal enough to be used in any situation, while informal enough to not sound stupid when said to a drunk friend)
Dankeschön (that addition doesn't really make a lot of sense, but some people got used to add it like that. It also might be a little regional and for some reason is the way how it's taught to little kids. Dankeschön -as a noun- can also have the meaning of a thank you-present)

A little notion only slightly related to the topic:
"Willkommen" is very similar to "Welcome", but is never used in the meaning of "You're welcome" as a reply to "Thanks".

i have noticed that "i love you" in turkish is missing , which is " seni seviyorum "
and "thank you" should have been " teşekkür ederim " instead of "teşekkürler" .
the difference is ;
teşekkür ederim = thank you
teşekkürler = thanks

Adding a little addition ^^
In Indonesian:
I Love You = Aku mencintaimu (this is the active sentence version of Aku cinta padamu)

In Chinese:
Thank you = Xie xie ni (this is more formal than xie xie, used for strangers and superiors)

Just to note, maybe in brazilian portuguese people will think you are a little pedant if you say "eu amo-te" instead "eu te amo".
Also you can say "não há de quê" (you're welcome). It is as common as "de nada".

I assume you wrote these in order, bene, but I just want to make sure I added them correctly to the first post. Is this right?

Multumesc = Thank You
Cu placere = You're Welcome
Te iubesc = I Love You
