    Thank you all very much.

    I'm sure that he will be really impressed and intrigued when I write that in his card!

    It all looks a bit like a bad typing error to me, but I always know that I can count on the good people on this site.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for all your help. My colleague left work on Friday and he was really surprised to read what I had written in his card in Polish. It made his day! He wanted to know how I had managed to find out how to write this in perfect Polish. I told him that I had a friend in Koszalin who told me! I didn't tell him any more.........so he is very intrigued to know who I know from Koszalin!!! I'll tell him the truth when I see him again in a fortnight's time.

    Thank you so much.

    Tresley.

    Powodzenia w nowej pracy i wszelkiej pomyślności na przyszłość.

    It sounds better...

    Hi, I have a female colleague and close friend also leaving work very soon. How could I modify this phrase to say: "Good luck in your new job. Be the best you can be and success will follow"

    Many thanks

    Hi,

    since the second sentence would sound a bit unnatural if translated literally, here's my proposition:

    Powodzenia w nowej pracy. Daj z siebie wszystko, a sukces przyjdzie sam.

    ("Good luck in new job. Do your best (lit.: do whatever you can) and success will come by itself").

    Of course, we can still wait for other ideas.

    Sorry all, not sure how to post new thread!!
    A Polish friend of mine is moving in to a new house. I just wanted to know if there was a traditional Polish gift to give to someone when moving into a new home?
    Thanks

    There is a big, purple button "Post a new thread" at the top of every forum. I'm sure you'll spot it, it just leaps out at you.

    As for your question, I'm afraid it goes beyond the scope of this forum, but check your PM for an answer :)
