"Please take off your shoes" in... well, lots of languages

Hey linguaphiles!

I have a housewarming party coming up. As my two housemates and I are all (psycho-)linguists, we'd like to have a sign saying "Please take off your shoes" in the native languages of our party guests. Don't tell me about the social protocol about such things, I'm just the one executing the task of getting the request translated. ;)

So, could you tell me how to say "Please take off your shoes" in:
Afrikaans
Dutch
French
Frisian
Greek
Hungarian
Icelandic
Irish
Italian
Japanese
Mandarin
Polish
Romanian
Spanish
Vietnamese
(If applicable, the informal singular imperative seems most appropriate for our guests. Feel free to note if that sounds off to your native ears, though. :))

Thank you so much in advance!

  • Polish translation, please

    A coworker gave my dad this bottle of vodka (it has grass in it!), and I'm dying to know what the text says. Can anyone help?

  • some Arabic (?) phrases

    These are from a novel from Philip Roth. I'm sure the author doesn't speak Arabic, so presumably he had somebody to translate and transliterate…

  • グズグズ meaning

    I am having trouble understanding what "グズグズ" means in this sentence: あのグズグズだった頃の俺の心がお前となぁなぁになる事をまだ許していないのは確かだ Could someone explain?
