English term or phrase: I love you
I no there is "te queiero" but are there any other ways to say I love you in spanish?

Explanation:
"Te quiero" has a broader use than "te amo". You could say "te quiero" to a friend or member of your family. The use of "te amo", in turn, is more restricted to a significant other. So, according to who the person you're saying "I love you" to is, you can choose either "te quiero" or "te amo".

All the answers were good except of course for the smart-mouthed one. On behalf of the thinking portion of the human race I apologize for the offensive people we seem to have on board this ship. SUERTE!

Explanation:
Yo creo que tanto la persona que hace la pregunta, como algunos que exageran.... te idolatro= I love you; claro,

están exagerando un poco. Por que no dedicar un foro tan serio que nos ayuda a aprender y a mejorar a ser eso... un foro de profesionales que respetan y cuidan su profesión. Porque para hacer una pregunta cómo qué significa I love you en español... Bien sabemos que te quiero y te amo... será lo mismo, a menos que se esté traduciendo una obra literaria. Nuestro idioma no es una broma. Es un idioma rico y precioso que debe respetarse. Al menos eso creo yo, porque amo mi idioma y respeto mi cultura.

Lo anterior en vista de personas que usan este foro por juego ó burla. Esta no es una columna de clasificados, es un apoyo para traductores que desean apoyar con sus conocimientos, ó que como yo, desean aprender un poco más.

Buena suerte con su traducción. Amar ó querer. Lo más importante es repetar. En consecuencia, amar ó querer, es igual. Es lo tierno y hermoso que existe dentro de un corazón que respeta, admira y ama ó quiere.

No es esto lo mismo?

Suerte.
