Sourav Singh,
thanks for your contributions so far. 

I am curious how did you learn so many languages? - Bengali, Hindi, Korean, Japanese, Chinese, German & Swahili (latest contributions from today) ?

I have lived in India for most of my life, so I am familiar with most Indian languages(Hindi, Bengali)

As for Korean, Chinese and Japanese, I had taken  certification courses on these languages, so I am familiar with them as well. German and Swahili is something I am still learning and I hope to take a certification in German pretty soon.

> German and Swahili is something I am still learning 

The rest of the contributions have been already merged but please hold off adding more Swahili for now. We do have contributors in Africa who are more likely to be native speakers.

FTR I've started learning Swahili on Duolingo a few week ago myself.

Sure thing. My Swahili is very beginner level, so I would have to avoid the language.

I did further verification of the proposed translations with several native speakers. They said the text is understandable but there are some mistakes/places which can be improved. 

I am going to approve this request because you've put effort into this but will not approve future translations for other languages where you are not a native speaker.
