As we say in hebrew "kol Hakavod to all of you". (If someone knows a real
english translation of that please post).

Yoni Ben-Ari, Efrat, Israel
Just today I was trying to find the translation of another Hebrew term
someone wrote in a message to me. I found this page, which is a faq for the
newsgroup soc.genealogy.jewish

http://www.faqs.org/faqs/judaism/FAQ/11-Miscellaneous/section-4.html

It provides a list of commonly used phrases - the ones that are
considered to be so common, it's assumed everyone would know them.

They give this translation -

"Kol Hakavod (literal translation: all honor)
Used idiomatically to express praise or congratulations for an
achievement [H]"

The [H] is for Hebrew, because they also have Yiddish words there [Y]

Hope this helps,
Lisa
