I\'ve not known Jack for very long (and he doesn\'t know I am posting this), but I am sure that everyone who frequents the Russian-English corner of ProZ will agree with me that he is one of the MOST helpful, generous and knowledgeable contributors to these boards.

Well he is also this year celebrating his fiftieth year as a professional translator. I\'d say that is a pretty big achievement and one that deserves a little acknowledgement.

As a relative youngster who has not only received the benefit of his wisdom, but had the pleasure of collaborating with him on a couple of jobs, I can say he\'s not just an excellent pro, but a thoroughly nice person (with a quietly mischievous sense of humour).

So at the risk of embarrassing him, I think it\'s a good opportunity to say thanks to Jack and well done on his first half century in the business - roll on the next fifty.



Dan

Congratulations from Argentina Feb 9, 2003

You may be surprised to learn that Jack is also a very appreciated friend at the Spanish forum. Many times has he shared with us his humor, his love for poetry and his human warmth.

Dear Jack - I've got a bottle of Laphroaig on order from Canada Feb 9, 2003

...it\'ll be here on Feb 18th - and I shall toast this anniversary with my first taste of that Islay elixir since August.



(So far have been surviving on transparent rice wines which taste like something that would sooner power the MiG-15, as confirmed by intestinal reheat effect noticeable to one and all except in the gustiest of outdoor weather.

Happy adolesence!! Feb 9, 2003

Jack,



We have yet not met you personally although I almost did in London (Aurora was a little jealous ).



Anyway, your good vibes and enormous humanity transcend the screen and electronic distance.



Happy day to you!!



Love and hugs from Buenos Aires,



JL and Aurora

I never go to the Russian-English KudoZ questions, but I do know Jack as a very helpful friend, not only in KudoZland.



So congratulations from the Chilean Patagonia, Jack !
