The Magnificat in different languages

Hello again...

Still about the Magnificat :)

Here is the Magnificat in some different languages...
Anyone can help me figuring out what languages are they? :P

Happy guessing!

------------------------------------
(in Latin)
Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus
in Deo salvatore meo,
quia respexit humilitatem
ancillae suae.

Ecce enim ex hoc beatam
me dicent omnes generationes,
quia fecit mihi magna,
qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericordia eius in progenies
et progenies timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordi sui;
deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles;
esurientes implevit bonis
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.
---------------------------------------------
Veliča duša moja Gospodina,
klikće duh moj
u Bogu mome Spasitelju,
što pogleda na neznatnost
službenice Svoje.

Odsad će Me, evo,
svi naraštaji zvati blaženom.
Jer velika mi djela učini Svesilni,
sveto je ime Njegovo!
Od koljena do koljena
dobrota je Njegova
nad onima što se Njega boje.
Iskaza snagu mišice svoje,
rasprši oholice umišljene.
Silne zbaci s prijestolja,
a uzvisi neznatne.
Gladne napuni dobrima,
a bogate otpusti prazne.
Prihvati Izraela,
slugu Svoga,
kako obeća ocima našim.
Spomenuti se dobrote Svoje
prema Abrahamu i
potomstvu njegovu dovijeka.
----------------------------------------------------
L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
e il mio spirito esulta in Dio,
mio salvatore.

Perchè ha guardato
l'umiltà della Sua serva.
D'ora in poi tutte le generazioni
mi chiameranno beata.
Grandi cose ha fatto
in me l'Onnipotente
e santo è il Suo nome:
di generazione in generazione
la Sua misericordia
si stende su quelli che lo temono.
Ha spiegato la potenza
del Suo braccio,
ha disperso i superbi
nei pensieri del loro cuore,
ha rovesciato i potenti dai troni,
ha innalzato gli umili;
ha ricolmato di beni gli affamati,
ha rimandato i ricchi a mani vuote.
Ha soccorso Israele, Suo servo,
ricordandosi della Sua misericordia,
come aveva promesso ai nostri padri,
ad Abramo e alla sua discendenza per sempre.
-------------------------------------------------------
Engrandece mi alma al Señor
y mi espíritu se alegra en Dios
mi salvador.

Porque ha puesto los ojos
en la humildad de su esclava,
por eso desde ahora
todas las generaciones
me llamarán bienaventurada,
porque ha hecho en mi favor
maravillas el Poderoso.
Santo es su nombre y su misericordia
alcanza de generación en generación
a los que le temen.
Desplegó la fuerza de su brazo,
dispersó a los que son soberbios
en su propio corazón.
Derribó a los potentados
de sus tronos
y exaltó a los humildes.
A los hambrientos colmó de bienes
y despidió a los ricos sin nada.
Acogió a Israel, su siervo,
acordándose de la misericordia
como había anunciado a nuestros padres
en favor de Abraham y de su linaje por los siglos.
--------------------------------------------------
(and..yes, I know this! in Indonesian ... :)
Aku mengagungkan Tuhan
Hatiku bersuka ria karena Allah, penyelamatku.
Sebab Ia memperhatikan daku, hambaNya yang hina ini
Mulai sekarang aku disebut yang bahagia oleh sekalian bangsa.
Sebab perbuatan besar dikerjakan bagiku oleh Yang Mahakuasa;
kuduslah namaNya.
Kasih sayangNya turun temurun kepada orang yang takwa.
Perkasalah perbuatan tanganNya;
dicerai-beraikanNya orang yang angkuh hatinya.
Orang yang berkuasa diturunkanNya dari takhta;
yang hina-dina diangkatNya.
Orang lapar dikenyangkanNya dengan kebaikan;
orang kaya diusirNya dengan tangan kosong.
Menurut janjiNya kepada leluhur kita,
Allah telah menolong Israel, hambaNya.
Demi kasih sayangNya kepada Abraham
serta keturunannya untuk selama-lamanya.

I'm Indonesian, but I don't like the bahasa version. It sounds a bit weird, doesn't it?

Likewise, I think we all should use English to study maths and science in schools in Indonesia. Just commenting since I'm doing engin.

Hey John,
