Re: translation
Well, I'm self-taught since starting my Museum - and can read most technical
terms and understand what many documents are about. I may be a bit slow,
but I get there. The good thing about Russian is that many words (computer,
program, fluorescent, etc) are pronunced pretty much the same, and once you
know the sound of the letters you're halfway to reading Russian. It's the
odd words that get me, and for that my Russian/English dictionary does fine.
I can also recommend a program "ParsWin" which does translations both ways.
