Some languages ... mostly guessing :)
2 - Esperanto
3 - Arabic
4 - Russian
6 - Welsh
7 - Greek
8 - Finnish
9, 19, 23 - one of these is Hindi, guessing the other two to be other Indian languages - maybe Telugu, Kannada, Tamil ...
11 - maybe Tibetan or Nepalese ?
15 - Japanese
16 - Hungarian, perhaps ?
17 - Korean
18 - Middle English or Icelandic :)
24 - Vietnamese
25 - Chinese, probably simplified characters.

Re: Some languages ... mostly guessing :)
Interestingly, languages 1 & 21 don't show up on my Mac (old OS version), but all languages are fine on Windows 10 (latest updates).

I've not ticked 15 because I don't quite see all of it. The 1st character, first group and 1st, 3rd and 4th characters of the second group are in black but the rest are in very pale grey.

Not convinced that what I see of 5 is what was supposed to be shown. The middle of the last word of 5 characters is a W.

2 - looks like it should be one of the indigenous South/Central American languages.
3 - Arabic
4 - Russian
6 - Welsh
7 - Greek
8 - Finnish
10 - Estonian
16 - Hungarian.
17 - Korean
18 - Icelandic
19 - Hindi
23 - Sanskrit
24 - Vietnamese

Another for your collection: Utukufu una Mungu palipo juu, Na katika inchi amani, kwa watu aliowaridhia.

It's from a rather battered, well-thumbed and much-annotated Swahili edition of the New Testament I got for 20p from a secondhand bookshop in Devon in about 1990. Published in 1928, the back cover is detached (but still present), much of the binding on the spine has gone, and an accompanying card attests that it was used for many years in Tanganyika by the Rev Frank E Shaw, of the Church Mission Society School in Dodoma.
