In Malay :
Minta maaf, Maafkan saya, Saya minta maaf or simply Maaf.

In Korean :
미안해요 (Mianhaeyo) - less formal
죄송합니다 (Chwisonghamnida) - more formal

:-D

First, sorry means désolé.

About I am sorry, it goes:
Je suis désolé. The more common
Je vous prie de bien vouloir accepter mes excuses. The more formal ever; which may be literally translated by I do pray you to accept my apologies.

Salut, comment ça va?

In Québec, we say: Je m'excuse, or: Pardon. It's more like in English since we are surronded by a sea of Anglophones (English-speaking persons).

Salut, à la prochaine!
