Czech translation:Všechno nejlepší k narozeninám
Explanation:
Unfortunately, unlike "Merry Christmas" (which is "Veselé Vánoce"), there is no literal equivalent to short Happy Birthday - sadly, even the celebratory song is not commonly sung ... This way, the shortest commonly used translation is the above.
