Post Help me translate these words: one of us

Your help is highly appreciated. My band Akelei is recording three songs for a new EP, it should be out later this year. The title for this EP will be 'Een van ons', which translates from Dutch to 'One of us' in English. The phrase comes from a lyrical theme that has occupied my mind lately and deals with our interconnectedness. As people, but also with every living thing on this planet. So it doesn't really mean only one of us, but rather the one being the all and all being one. The idea is that we're all part of a global ecosystem and as such, interdependent.

To utilise this connection, I'm asking you, forum users, to translate the phrase 'one of us' into your own language and send it back to me. If you speak several languages, even better. I will include as many translations as will fit on the cardboard panels. And yes, the idea is to bypass Google Translate and mine the combined linguistic intelligence of our global community instead.

Oh, and if you're fluent in a language that uses characters for words and concepts, I would love to know how the phrase is built up, what each segment represents.

You are welcome to submit your translations to info [at] akelei [dot] org
