    Re: Please help me with a translation!

    (Поздравляю) с днем рождения! Ты - супер! Мне будет очень грустно, если я тебя больше не увижу. Я уже скучаю по тебе.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Here's my try at it:

    С днём рождения! Ты мое излюбленный! Я буду настолько грустен, когда я не вижу вас больше. Я тоскую без вас уже.
    Feel free to correct my Russian, I'm just a beginner so it'll really need some fixing.

    No trust me
    This is partly taken from Оля but with a slight English misinterpretation corrected

    С днем рождения! Ты - супер! Мне будет очень грустно, когда я тебя больше не вижу. Я уже скучаю по тебе.

    Any challengers?
    Сюда нужно смотреть. И слушать, что я говорю.

    Well, I don't know what to say. I want to say thanks to the Academy, to Mama, to Papa and to my dog. I love you all.

    Well I guess I stand corrected
    I was sure that meant "never see you again"

    Because of the words "I'll be" and "anymore," in Russian, it is "не увижу," I am pretty sure.

    How come? Both the original and translation imply that they will not meet anymore...

    Thank you so much for all your help so far and I hope there will be more discussion to help me more. I have a few days left to perfect what I am trying to express and practice my cyrillic cursive. To give you more context, I think V is correct in thinking that I will see him again at some point. We work together, but we are both looking for different employment. Right now we see each other everyday. When we no longer work together, we will only see each other occasionally. Again, thank you ... I appreciate all of your help.

    It doesn't sound Russian absolutely.

    How about "мне будет очень грустно, когда/если мы перестанем с тобой видеться"?
    I don't like finality in the "больше не увижу".

    Да, мне кажется, так тоже хорошо.

    Sounds weird a bit, "разлучиться" is mostly passive ("их разлучили во младенчестве").
    Here it also implies (imho) that now they are "together" (like a pair).
