Yes misters surprisingly even for Russian your knowledge of Russian. Also it is a shame that so badly I know English

Sergey,

Your English is just fine!!! I can't speak or write Russian and I'm trying to learn to read it. So, your understanding of English is 100% better than my understanding of Russian.

Perhaps the powers that be over here can condense all the previous postings into one comprehensive frame?

I vote Ed Haynes to be the man for the job!

Ha, ha, ha -- Richie, you DO have a sense of humor! I have not The Power in this forum (or in most, for that matter).

Though it would be nice to have a unified vocabulary list.

I am sorry if this sounds like a commercial plug (me not being a great fan of capitalism), but I am finding http://shop.promt.com/store/promt/DisplayP...ductID.98713500 to be a joy and lifesaver (and a source of great humor) for the Mondvor and Sammler websites, among others.

Please delete if deemed nasty/commercial.

Came across this on another thread and I believe it should be included in here.

Might save some time trying to copy and paste cyrillic fonts.

For some this may just be the best thing since sliced bread!

(And since when was sliced bread the best thing? - can't we possibly think of anything better - George Carlin!)

Interesting topic, but does anybody know of a good OCR able to understand cyrillic. I have few award citations and other paper documents I would like to translate (especially now that I learned how to browse podvignaroda.ru) with just too much text for me to type manually into a translator.

Thanks in advance
