Praising Allah Ta'ala in another language

Q: Is it better to praise Allah Ta'ala in Arabic or my own language? 

A: In a language that you can understand better. However, if there is a masnoon dua and it contains the praises of Allah Ta`ala then say it with the very Arabic words. Like when a person sneezes, you say, "Alhamdulillah". So say it in Arabic.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
