Thanks for being born,! Aug 25, 2008

We are all in great debt to this fantastic internet creation.

There is a 'before' and 'after' world for most of us and we are very happy to belong the 'after' part.

Hurray! Long live and its community of language aficionados!

Absolutely Aug 25, 2008

It's invaluable. However, it has suddenly become much more impersonal, chasing the corporate market. It seems much less of a user group and the failure to promote an international conference this year has reinforced this perspective.
Other sites are beginning to look more attractive.

Yes, Happy Birthday Aug 26, 2008

But I agree with Russell, both that it's invaluable and that it has become more impersonal.

Happy B-Day! Aug 26, 2008


"B-Day" is a common way Americans shorten 'birthday.'

And now for a greeting in my other language:

¡Feliz Cumpleaños!

Gëzuar > Congratulations Aug 26, 2008

Seems like I have missed many other birthdays. I have been around for about 1 year (actually registered 2 years ago but was quite inactive), and it's been a good place to be.

Ditto Mats Wiman!

Cheers to Henry and all ProZ members

Bon anniversaire ! Aug 26, 2008

I really started as a freelance translator with Proz and found my first clients here.

Although I have other clients now, they are all more or less related with Proz for me, as I got them through networking with people I met at Proz events.

I hope there will be an international conference next year, the one in Budapest was fantastic.

Would like to celebrate properly with some champagne... but I have this urgent translation to deliver before the end of the day... (sight )

Nice idea, Monika Aug 26, 2008

A "good vibrations-thread" is always like a "refreshing breeze" in this at times rather crazy world of forum exchanges.

So I'll join in your birthday spirit to send a virtual handshake...

... To congratulate all the ProZian staff/creators, but also all those at times almost "invisible" volunteers, such as nice/friendly forum moderators like you, Monika, and to greet all those ProZians around the world who, at some point in their lives, may have been (and may still be) positively touched (professionally or personally) in one way or another thanks to the creation/existence of

....Hmmm, maybe that turned out a bit "too sweet" (never mind, just add it to my "having a sweet day" balance...)

Van harte gefeliciteerd met je negende verjaardag Aug 26, 2008

"off-on heart by-felicitated with your nineth over-year-day".

Sorry to see one of your staff has gone to a better place. Where no clock ticks and the sun never sets, because there's no west nor east nor north nor south. Because there's only eternal Light. We don't forget you, Justin.

Nine is a mine
filled with jobs, cooperation, fun
Just at your desk, you don't need to run
Language, obsolete or hot
For everything it's the right spot
Whether you're writing with keyboard or pen
Cheers, while we're heading for the ten!
