we've been expecting you

Tourism Toronto has a number of posters of people wearing t-shirts saying "We've been expecting you" in various languages. I think they're really cool. Here are some of them.

Greek: Σας περιμέναμε

Russian: Мы вас ждали (My vas ždali)

Bulgarian: Най-после сте тук (Naj-posle ste tuk)

Polish: Spodziewaliśmy się Państwa

Persian: منتظر شما بوديم (muntaẓir šamā būdīm)

Panjabi: ਸਾਨੂੰ ਉਮੀਦ ਸੀ ਕਿ ਤੁਸੀਂ ਆਓਗੇ (sānūṃ umīd sī ki tusīṃ āoge)

Lithuanian: Laukėme jūsų atvykstant 
Tagalog: Hinihintay namin kayo

Finnish: Olemme odottaneet sinua
Armenian: Մենք սպասել ենք քեզ! (Memk’ spasel emk’ k’ez)

Hungarian: Már vártunk rád

Arabic: إننا بانتظارك معنا

Maltese: Konna qed nistennewk

Somali : Waan ku filaynay



Japanese: 待ってたよ (mattetayo)


Thai: เราคอยคุณอยู่ (rao khoi khun yū)



Tamil: நாங்கள் உங்களை எதிர்பார்த்திருந்தோம் (nāṅkaḷ uṅkaḷai etirpārttiruntōm)



Twi? Yɛatwɛn wo akyɛ



Ojibwe: Gi'gii pii'igo ji'bidagoshi'nan



Canadian syllabics: ᐣᑭᐢᑫᐣᑌᑕᐣ ᑭᒋ ᐯᒋ ᑕᑯᔑᓇᐣ - is this Cree?
