Any linguists on DU?

I'm working on a project for July 4th and need some assistance. We're wanting to make some hand-lettered posters featuring "Welcome!" in other languages. The European languages are no problem, but we're having difficulty finding other examples that we can readily replicate; the pages I've found on google show text that loses resolution when I try to enlarge it.

So, as I often do, I'm turning to DU for help. Specifically, we need:

Somali
Greek
Japanese
Hebrew
Arabic
SE Asia languages

Thanking you in advance!

Update: Appreciate all the suggestions. I'm not the computer geek in the family, and the 9-year-old neighbor who usually helps me navigate the netz (while rolling his eyes at my old lady ineptitude) is away visiting grandparents. So your time and effort is doubly appreciated! I'll let you know how it all turns out.

Iíll take the all-you-can-eat shrimp buffet, but hold the Republican presidential candidate, please.

Margaret, is it a sad day, indeed. I was just reading the news about how America has gone against the word of God with the latest Supreme Court ruling. I am just beside myself. If any of those judges were to just read the bible, they would clearly see the error of their judgment in the Book of Leviticus.

Thou shalt not cut your hair roundwise: nor shall you shave your beard. (Chapter 19 Verse 27)

No. Wait a minute. Thatís not it. Itís another chapter. That one was used by the court when they ruled on Supercuts vs. Bad Hair Days.

So many tears...

A very broad emotional spectrum today. On one side we celebrate love being set free from the restraints of bigotry; on the other side we mourn the consequences of unrestrained bigotry. Tears of great joy mingle with tears of profound sorrow.

A question about WordPress

On the website, having some problems with the "add media" option.

Can load graphics into the library, but it won't allow adding graphics from library to new postings.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Alex Witt on MSNBC just now...

That was a surprise. Discussing Charleston and the need to do something about gun access, Alex Witt was interviewing Howard Dean and Ron Christie. When Christie started with his predictable talking points, Witt very angrily cut him off; she really tore into him. Had the feeling that, had he been in the same room with her, she would have slapped him. She was clearly struggling to contain her anger. Not something we've previously seen from her. Wow.
