Questions and Answers:
Q: Is it possible to have all birthdays put into a single thread?
A: No. The idea of a birthday thread is to spot light a single member and have a place to share nice comments directed solely to the one member.
Q: I changes the phrase but the master phrase is still being used.
A: The Language ID in the Options needs to set to the language you want emails to be sent it. In the Admin Control Panel navigate to Languages and determine the Language ID by looking at the URL of the language you want to use. The URL will include a number which is the Language ID.
