I copied and pasted your code onto my computer:

python2 doesn't like extended ascii - it says you must encode the characters -- a pain python hello.py File "hello.py", line 4 SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xc3' in file hello.py on line 4, but no encoding declared; see http://python.org/dev/peps/pep-0263/ for details

HOWERVER< python3 is fine with your code:

python3 hello.py ['Hello', 'Tungjatjeta', 'Grüßgott', 'Вiтаю', 'dobrý den', 'hyvää päivää', '你好', '早上好']
