    Hi There,

    I am having some trouble with business letters in Spanish, as they should sound professional but also warm and friendly at the same time. I would like to say something like this:
    </span></p> Congratulations for the last ten years of successfully leading the Consejo General. Thank you for your support during this time and I wish you further success in your future endeavours.

    This is my guess:

    "Felicitaciones por los últimos diez años de tu presidencia del Consejo General. Quisiera agradecerte por el apoyo que has dado en este tiempo y desearte éxito y buena suerte en tus futuros proyectos."

    I bet you can improve on this though !

    Felicidades por los últimos 10 años en los que dirigiste con éxito el Consejo General. Gracias por el apoyo que me has dado en este tiempo y te deseo ...

    I would question "last ten years/últimos diez años": it seems to say that the congratulations are for only the last ten years. Maybe something like "te felicito en el décimo aniversario de tu presidencia ... te agradezco sinceramente tu constante apoyo, y te deseo mucho éxito en todas tus empresas (en el futuro)". This supposes that he is leaving the presidency and moving on to other activities.

    Sorry, I should have been more clear. He is leaving the presidency, so this is a "goodbye and thankyou" letter.

    Does this change the way you would write it?

    Thanks,

    Maybe then "te felicito tus diez años como presidente ...", although I think tenth anniversary is stlll appropriate, too.
