    best of skill

    Dear Friends,

    I want to use the structure: 'best of skill' + translation

    Which is the correct version:

    Best of skill on/with/? your translation.

    Meaning: Do your best when you are doing your translation.

    Re: best of skill

    This is not a very good structure. Best of luck os appropriate, but best of skill is not. A far better sentence would be: "Do your best on your translation" which has the same meaning.

    Re: best of skill

    A native wrote to me the other day:

    "Best of skill on your research"

    Is this structure ok?

    Native or not, this makes no sense at all. As previously said "Best of luck with your research" would be entirely expected, but the sentence you've quoted is nonsensical.
