    14. Serbo-Croat
    15. Hungarian
    16. Finnish
    17. Turkish
    18. Indonesian
    19. Esperanto
    20. Russian

    The Webster's Online Dictionary Rosetta Edition also lists words in the following languages. I counted 111 languages, but only gleaning from words water, fire, one, I; there are supposed to be some 600 languages (10% of all living languages of the world) stored in the database amounting to around 1 terabytes.

    Do you know of any other multilingual sources you can share ? How useful have you found them ?
    Z: The fish in the water are happy.
    H: How do you know ? You're not fish.
    Z: How do you know I don't ? You're not me.
    H: True I am not you, and I cannot know. Likewise, I know you're not, therefore I know you don't.
    Z: You asked me how I knew implying you knew I knew. In fact I saw some fish, strolling down by the Hao River, all jolly and gay.
