Say I Hate You in Another Language

Everyone talks about about the romance of saying "I love you" in another language. But what about to other side of things? Love and hate are closely related to each other, so why not learn how to express it?

Tired of being romantic and learning how to say “I love you” in as many languages as possible? Maybe it’s time to cut your losses and dump the person you thought you once did love? Now you can end your relationship, whether it’s your ex-lover or your soon to be ex-boss, with a little extra style.

Everything is listed as the English name of the language the phrase is translated into followed by how to say “I hate you” (or the local equivalent) in that language.

In many languages the there are multiple words for “you” in which one is formal and one is informal. Where possible I have tried to include both versions, however I’m sure that I’ve left a few out. Of course, if you you stop and think about it for a moment, there’s very little need to use a formal version of the phrase if it exists. After all, formal language is generally used in regards to elders and those whom you respect, and if you respect someone, the chances of you wanting to tell them off is greatly reduced. As for the online translators, they are a great resource to get started with things, but I’ve tried to do excess research where I can to better determine any changes that may be needed. Some of this is based off of talking with native speakers of the language, and others are based off of me trying to deduce it using what I know in other languages.

A word of warning, don’t forget that “hate” is a very strong word in many languages and cultures, so be sure to use your new knowledge with care!

** I appreciate that people are posting corrections and additions to my list here and I’ll be happy to include them as I receive them. However, as I have a feeling that some of the updates are more colloquial versions, if you could also give the literal translation I would really appreciate it.

    No, no no! “I hate you” in Finnish is NOT “I-Kirjain inhota te”! It’s “Minä vihaan sinua”. The Swedish version “Jag hata du” is a bit better, but still wrong: “Jag hatar dig” is the correct translation. And, by the way, in Russian (which isn’t included in the list) it’s “Ya tebya nenavizhu”.

    i hate you in Polish is not ” Ja nienawidzic ty”! its ” Nienawidze Cie”

    in japanese isn’t it “anta no koto daikirai” for i hate you?

  5. Mimi

    On January 4, 2008 at 7:29 am

    In Spanish, it’s Odio usted!
    Have you been using an online translator? Seriously, never use those things. Ever.

  6. Carmen

    On January 19, 2008 at 4:39 pm

    in Dutch, it’s: “Ik haat je”
    (you used ‘u’, which is the polite version for ‘you’, that you only use for older people/people from a higher social class. it would be wrong using ‘hate’ and ‘u’ in the same sentence.)

  7. Ruja

    On January 26, 2008 at 9:40 am

    In Ukrainian it’s “Ya tebe nenavydzhu” or “Ya vas nenavydzhu”
    And I’m not quite sure about the Spanish version offered ’cause it’s either “Te odio” or “Odio usted” as Mimi has offred. The thing is that the word “you” in English has one meaning while in the other languages these vary depending on the person you talk to.

    I hate you is “jeg hater deg” in Norwegian Bokmål and “eg hatar deg” in Norwegian Nynorsk. Almost there! :)

  10. Wrw

    On March 5, 2008 at 12:22 pm

    The correct Indonesian sentence is: “Aku benci kamu”. That’s enough. Regarding the Indonesian words above: “Anjing” means dog, “jangkrik” means cricket; but that’s not the point—it is a twist of “jancuk”. “Jancuk” itself is a contemptive word, an expletive, which sure will boil the person that hears it.

    In japanese, saying simply “Daikirai” will work just as well.

  19. Hannah

    On June 5, 2008 at 2:00 pm

    thank you for the Arabic – in Moroccan Arabic it’s “ana krehnik”

    Also the German should be “Ich hasse dich”, because “Sie” is the polite form (and of course, it’s not a polite thing to say)

  20. Pete

    On June 22, 2008 at 1:48 pm

    Danish is ‘Jeg hader dig’. The version you used is pluralis and a polite form for I hate you, basically translated: ‘I dont like you’

  21. LilProphet

    On July 4, 2008 at 3:05 am

    Hungarian is ‘utállak’.

  22. Tomo

    On July 25, 2008 at 3:38 am

    Yes, true you can just say \’daikirai\’ [die-key-r-eye) at them, but that\'s just like screaming \"HATE\" which really, wouldn\'t you prefer to say the whole sentence and still hold some dignity in knowing that you\'ve said it right?
    Yes, you can say \"anta no koto daikirai\" [an-ta no coe-toe die-key-r-eye] too, but that isn\’t the only way to say \”I hate you\”
    Here are some more ways on how to say I hate you. There is: \”Omae Cho Mukatsuku\” [street level of saying] \”Anata ga kirai desu\” [more of a textbook saying.] \”anta no daikirai\” [simple way of just saying \'i hate you\']
