New Year’s greetings in foreign languages

Oh, how time flies! Many of us breathe a sigh of relief when the clock strikes midnight, as we leap into the new year... Some of us reminisce about what is past. Others think expectantly about what the coming year will bring. On New Year’s Eve at midnight and a few days after, people will greet one another, clinking glasses, celebrating, hugging, kissing and shaking hands.

Some places start the celebrations an hour or two earlier, some later, yet the ever-repeating New Year’s greetings never go out of fashion.

Many of us have family, friends or customers abroad. Maybe you too are about to spend New Year’s Eve and Day away from your homeland, and could use a few New Year’s greetings in a foreign language. And what kind of a translation agency would we be if we didn’t offer you a solution? That’s why we are bringing you New Year’s greetings in diverse languages.

The most common greetings in the most common languages

If we wanted to wish you Happy New Year in all the world’s languages, it would probably take us into the next year. That’s why we have prepared New Year’s greetings for you in languages closest to ours, or are the most spoken in the world. So how do people say Happy New Year in other parts of the world?
