    A famous greeting "Happy New Year" in Ukrainian is:
    "Щасливого нового року!" (Shchaslyvoho novoho roku).
    But very often Ukrainians say "З новим роком!" (Z novym rokom) = With New Year!

    And what new year's congratulations are in Your country and in Your language?

    Italian:
    Buon anno! Felice anno nuovo!
    Buon capodanno! (to say on Dec 31st: Happy new year's Eve)

    Without reason, we neither say *buon anno nuovo, nor *felice anno

    Chinese:
    新年快乐!新年好!<- for both Western and Chinese new year
    元旦快乐! <- only Western new year
    新春快乐!春节快乐! <- only Chinese new year

    Of course there is the typical Hungarian wish as well, but there is a unique one "BUEK 2013". It's as mysterious as the Czech "Pf 2013". :)

    Chinese:
    新年快乐!xīn nián kuài lè! | 新年好!xīn nián hǎo!
    元旦快乐!yuán dàn kuài lè!
    新春快乐!xīn chūn kuài lè | 春节快乐!chūn jié kuài lè

    I advise you to use this site, or this one. They convert automatically the hanzi into pinyin.
    Although they could make some mistakes on hanzi with more possible pronunciation, such as 节 was marked as 1st tone, but in this case it should be 2nd tone, I corrected it.

    Here's another New Year's greeting often used by Norwegians:

    G
    odt nyttår og takk for det gamle!

    Happy New Year and thank you for the previous one (year)!

    (Literally - Happy New Year and thank you for the old!)
