Arabic== Árabe or Arabe (better Árabe, but depends if you can write the Á in your keyboard)
Catalan==Catalán OK
Chinese (Traditional)==Chino (Tradicional) OK
Czech==Checo OK
Danish==Canés NO --> Danés (misspelling)
German==Alemán OK
Greek==Griego OK
English (US)==Inglés (EEUU) OK

Finnish==Finlandés OK
French==Francés OK
Hebrew==Hebreo OK
Hungarian==Húngaro OK
Italian==Italiano OK
Japanese==Japonés OK
Korean==Coreano OK
Dutch==Holandés OK
Norwegian==Noruego OK
Polish==Polaco OK

Portuguese (Brazil)==Portugués (Brasil) OK
Romanian==Rumano OK
Russian==Ruso OK
Croatian==Croata OK
Slovakian==Eslovaco OK
Swedish==Sueco OK
Thai==Tailandés OK
Turkish==Turco OK
Ukrainian==Ucranio NO--> Ucraniano
Very good, only one mistake (Ucraniano) the other two are a misspelling (Danés) and a correction (Árabe instead of Arabe, but that's not really a big problem)

Thank you sosia.

Another question, the first character of the language name in English usually is in upper case, I don't know whether the first character of the language name in Spanish must be in capital too. Thanks for help!

The language names should not be capitalized.

Adding specificity.

EDIT: I guess my addition wasn't so necessary after reading post number 3. I replied before reading it.

"The language names in Spanish should not be capitalized."

I write it capitalized because it's a list, And I suppose they are the first words in the sentences.

Yes, I wasn't criticizing your list, Sosia. I agree that language names should be capitalized at the beginning of a sentence (or when in a list ), but failed to mention that. I was thinking about when the name falls within a sentence when I said they should not be capitalized.
