I have a littel question: what is "Happy birthday" in your language?
A friend has birthday and I'd like to write a card with this sentence in different languages.

i've heard and read it somewhere: you have to make a difference between male and female
male: eid milaad saeed
female: kul sana wa inta tayeb
maybe soemone can write it in arabic :) i can't :lol:

u got real close dubai lover...
you can use "Eid Milaad Saeed" for both male and female. Which means happy birthday.
or "Kul Sana ow Inta Tayeb" for male or "Kul Sana ow Inty Taybah" for females. This sort of means i hope your in good health each year.

I think "Kul sana ow Inta Tayeb" is more of an egyptian phrase, whereas most other arabs say "Kul 'am wenta b'kheir".
Patrick just choose any one you like, they're all used equally as often. And what's with "YOUR language"? Sounds like you 're asking a bunch of aliens whose language you've never heard of before, OUR language has a name you know, ARABIC! :)
