English term or phrase: When is your birthday?
When is your birthday?
Aapka janamdin kab hai?
Explanation:
Aapka janamdin kab hai?
OR
Aapka janmadin kab hai?
OR
Aapka janmadivas kab hai?
OR
Tumhara janmadin kab hai?

I agree with Roomy Naqvy about his translation:
"Aapka janmadivas kab hai?"
but would like to propose an alternative:
Aapka janamdin kab hai?
The word "janamdin" or "janmadin" is less formal than "janmadivas" and more common in usage. It would perhaps be more suitable for your question, depending on the context.


I would also like to add that as in Japanese, there is a difference in speech addressed to a superior and an inferior. The "aapka" confers a higher status on the person to whom the question is addressed. However, when speaking to a friend, casual acquaintance or child, one would say:
"Tumhara janamdin kab hai?"

The words "janamdin", "janmadin" or "janmadivas" and the really formal "varshganth" which Roomy F Naqvy has proposed may be used interchangeably in any of the above answers.

I hope this information helps.

Aapka janmadivas kab hai?


Explanation:
The translation for 'When is your birthday' would be 'Aapka janmadivas kab hai?'. The essential word used for 'birthday' is 'janmadivas'. Though for anniversary one may use the word 'varshganth'; sometimes, in uncommon usage of the word, people may use the word 'varshganth' for 'birthday'.
