A nice, easy game; all you need to do is post a translation, or approximation, of the phrase or word given by the person above in your nation's main language. Then, underneath, simply ask 'How do you say...,' choosing whatever word or phrase you like! Please don't post any profanities (we'll create a dedicated thread for swearing if there's enough demand- just kidding :P ), etc. etc.
Even if your language uses non-Latin characters, please do provide a version with Latin characters so we can read it!
So, I'll start with... good morning!
*Avaerilonian. Shown here in Latin characters.
And how do you say 'good morning' in your national language?

In Toolhldoorinem: Ćoc trëg hen pôr dzo şôğoçöśë ṕöłoð. / Koc trëğ hen pôr go şôğhoçöqë phöƿodh. Literally My state leader is a fat fool.
Note: Both sentences mean and are pronounced in exactly the same manner, but the first is in the new standard orthography, the Van De Polder Latin Toolhldoorinem Ortography, the second being in the Broodman Orthography for the Toolhldoorinem Language, the standard from the 1880s until August 2nd, 2013, and still widely used.
In Portdansk: Má natíónemft lædðrí ís ggrœtosk ond fýlchisc. Literally My nation's leader is fat and foolish. One might also say "Dë pætrychem ís ggrœtosk ond fýlchisc.", meaning The patriarch is fat and foolish.
How would you say "Get away from that panda's chimney!"?
(Yes, basically! Conveniently the word for 'crap' I picked is very similar to the Welsh word for fart [rhech], but its also nice and onomatopoeic. Literally it would be "crap is the weather," but that's besides the point.)
