English term or phrase: good evening
I'm searching for a translation in arabic language: Good morning, Good evening, Hi and Hello, I love you and pleasant
melvin
MASA' AL-KHAIR
Explanation:
Good morning = SABAH AL-KHAIR صَباح الخير

Good Evening = MASA\' AL-KHAIR مَساء الخير

I love you = UHIBBUK أُحبُّك
Specifically to a male = UHIBBUKA
Specifically to a female = UHIBBUKI

Pleasant = LATEEF (masculine) لَطيف
Pleasant = LATEEFA (feminine) لَطيفة

The hi-hello variety includes such common expressions as:

ASSALAMU ALAYKUM (a perennial favorite of mine)
AHLAN
MARHABA
etc.

The list goes on, as you can imagine. The most appropriate \"hi-hello\" expression will vary according to region and situation. This regional factor applies to the other expressions as well, especially as regards pronunciation (the expression for \"I love you\" is an interesting case in point). If you have a particular regional dialect in mind, we can fine tune the choices for you.

The choice of word for \"pleasant\" will significantly vary according to context (what noun is being modified).

I have provided the expressions in Arabic script as well, just in case you needed that. I hope you are able to display Arabic text on your system. If not, please let us know so we can show you how.
