This should also accept the more literal "Wishing you a happy birthday", which we wouldn't really say out loud in English but which is commonly seen on greeting cards.

"I wish you a happy birthday!" should also be accepted!!!! - To say just "happy birthday" I have the impression that "生日快乐" would be enough! - It is very frustrating that most correct answers still not are accepted!!!

I agree. I just had your exact answer rejected even though the statement is literally "Wish you happy birthday!"

According to your translation, 祝你 is superfluous. A complete and natural roll-out-of-the-mouth translation by a comfortably fluent English speaker is "I WISH YOU a happy birthday."

Ironically, it does not accept “Happy birthday to you!”.

That's what i was thinking; adding the "to you" part makes it a more literal translation, and still quite idiomatic; indeed, Dr. Seuss wrote a book titled Happy Birthday to You.

"I wish you" or "Wishing you" or even "Wish you" should be acceptable at the beginning of this sentence. Otherwise 生日快乐 and 祝你生日快乐 have the exact same translation... the additional characters should be addressed.

May you have a happy birthday should be accepted

"Happy Birthday to you!" should be accepted! Your so called correct answer is not exact in this case! "祝你" is not necessary to say "Happy birhtday" - please correct!

Yes, this is a contradiction of a previous example. Now you do not have to use the word 'wish'. Keep reporting these inconsistencies.

Stop your comments, The translations are wrong most of the time, don't waste your time trying to figure out why, Just move to the next question.

Er... That is what the report button is for. If Duolingo is smart, it ignores the comments here.
