Word: Polyglot.

Polyglot (POL-ee-glot) – from the Greek for “many tongues” – refers to writing or speaking in many languages.

Example (as used in the Chicago Sun Times): “Yes, [Anthony] Burgess loved to scatter polyglot obscurities like potholes throughout his more than 50 novels and dozens of nonfiction works. He could leap gaily from Welsh to French to Malay to Yiddish in one breath.”
