Happy Fourth of July to everyone who wants to celebrate it. More independence form all the phenomena that may limit a translator in any way, their prosperity, intellectual and professional growth.

Happy Fourth of July! Jul 4, 2013

Lest we lead our cousins from around the globe into temptation ...
let's not liberate ourselves from the basic rules of grammar and usage:

... More independence from all the phenomena that may limit translators, their prosperity, and their intellectual and professional growth in any way.

I don't know if typos and sentence fragments are considered even venial sins in forum posts, but the misplacement of a dependent clause was certainly deadly in this case.

In the spirit of ecumenicalism, we'll correct the other bit without further comment (and because it's just a forum posting, after all).

Maybe I'm just jealous because I can't see the fireworks from over here ...
