Dave T Hobbit If you want to create extensive paragraphs in many languages, I suggest starting here.

Farseer Ulthris I was generally thinking in terms of characters listening in on foreigners in conversation, as well as cursing, prayers and incantations for spells. I feel that being immersed in languages helps the audience feel they are visiting a vast world. I'd also think it be quite the learning experience.

If you need to know more, just let me know.

Dave T Hobbit That is a lot of languages. What is the universe for? Depending on why you are creating them you might never use most of them. Even a huge series of novels (e.g. Middle Earth, Wheel of Time) only have occasional words or phrases in non-English, and RPGs are likely to use less.

If you can give us some idea of how they will be used it will help in working out a good place to start.
