3 English to Russian Translations (Under 250 Words) » answer
by UofIStudent (UN), 2018-02-24, 16:46  like dislike  Spam?  
Hi there!

I am a translation student and our most recent homework assignment requires us to find outside translators (people not in our class) to translate the same text in different ways. My group still needs three native Russian speakers (project requirement) to translate this excerpt by 2/27/18.

Our assignment is: "Get different translators to translate the text according to different instructions. Compare the different solutions used."

Please let me know if you are interested in helping with this assignment! Thank you!

Japan is to open its first boarding school, modeled on English public schools such as Eton, designed to instill manners and morality in its students and nurture a generation of future leaders.

Many people in Japan consider that the country has lost its way, with a stagnant economy, a rising crime rate and a seemingly endless procession of political and corporate scandals.

Critics blame an education system that emphasizes obedience over initiative and exam success over character. The Japanese media have nicknamed Kaiyo Academy, which opens next spring, the Eton of Japan. But unlike Henry VI's original foundation for "poor scholars," it is sponsored by three of Japan's biggest companies, including Toyota.

In line with the Eton model, it will have houses where 120 Japanese students every year will live and...

We recently bought a set of matryoshka at a yard sale and have been trying to translate the writing on the bottom. We believe the first line is Sergiev Posad, followed by the date, but are having trouble with the last line. Could it be the artist's name or a title of the paintings on the dolls?

Hello! Received this handwriting I tried matching the cursive with letters but it's really tough and realize it'll be pretty much impossible. Context is probably something goofy addressed to a significant other.

Transliteration of cyrillic letters in latin alphabet » answer
by yzari (UN), 2018-01-12, 14:04  like dislike  Spam?  
I ran into a user named 3APA3O4KA and got curious about what this actually translates to. I guess it is a latin-alphabet transliteration of Cyrillic letters and probably russian or ukrainian? The closest I get is "запазoчка". That would translate to something like "lag" ?

Any help with what language this is or what it translates to would be very nice. Thanks.
by Demetrius, 2018-01-12, 19:35  like dislike  Spam?  176.49.196....
This is Russian word "заразочка" (zarazochka), this word means "little infection". "Заразочка" is the derivate from word "зараза" with addition diminutive affix.

by yzari (UN), 2018-01-12, 21:21  like dislike  Spam?  
Thank you very much. To me "little infection" has negative connotations, with infection meaning disease. Looking into the meaning of 3apa3o4ka I found several bloggers and online users in various forums and online games that use this as their online user name.
Could you shed some light as to why one would chose something like "small disease" as their user name? Is it possible that there is some more meaning or cultural difference at work here?
by Demetrius, 2018-01-13, 06:45  like dislike  Spam?  176.49.213...
Yes, "зараза" is contagious disease. Only bad meaning.

"Заразочка" is the Russian word of female kind. It is not probable for boy to have such the nick-name, rather, they are girls. I do not think we must look to the side of culture explaining this. This is something growing from (kid) psychology. They play such the game (showing to the other men they are bad girls).

The word ZARAZA has really as many as three meanings:

1) disease or its causative agent (infection, contagion)
2) a mean person, a scoundrel  ( like son-of-a-bitch; (about the woman) bitch
3) interjection: damn!; hell!

ZARAZOCHKA means in colloquial speech as much as " little bitch" (of a girl)

Last time I saw Sergey, it was 1995 and we were near Zagreb, Croatia.   We exchanged contact info.  He wrote his address down,but I’ve never been able to understand it.  

I recently found someone who was able to map the address.  I found it on google maps and am planning g to send a letter to that address in the mail. I’m just not 100% sure how to write it.   Also, there seems to be more information other than the address.  Can anyone help me understand what it means?   Also, any tips on locating him online would be helpful

Re: World War II Soviet Postcard Translation Request » answer
by NotesCollector, 2017-12-27, 07:43  like dislike  Spam?  220.255.20...
Dear friends,

 I acquired these two World War II Soviet postcards recently and wondered if anyone could be of help in translating what was written on the postcards.

I do not know Russian myself, and given the historical context in which the two postcards were written, I just thought it would be a shame to not try and find out what the writers were actually conveying.

I would be most grateful for any help!

Many thanks, and best wishes for the new year ahead!

Dear friend,

I cannot load pictures from photobucket. Bad connect, or something go wrong. Please, send me pictures here exre4; I can start to translate in 15 hours approx, I can give you the translation tomorrow, approx in 20 hours (all from this moment when I wrote this).

Best wishes.

Hello Demetrius,

Thank you for your reply and offer of help! Unfortunately, I cannot send the pictures to exre4; as it is not a valid email address.

Do you have another email?

Hello Demetrius,

On second thought, I uploaded the two postcard images on another website.

Postcard 2 -

Just copy the link starting from 'goo' and paste it in your web browser - it should work okay.

Я, конечно, не сравниваю вашего горя со своим. Но мне тоже сейчас очень тяжело. И с кем, как не с вами, могу я сейчас говорить? Возможно потому, что я любила Володю, вы для меня, которых я совершенно не знаю, стали сразу близкими, родными.

Крепко целую вас,

Hello Demetrius,

Thank you very much for your help once again! I am very pleased and count myself very fortunate to be able to finally understand what the two WWII Soviet postcards were about. They were written by ordinary soldiers; one soldier wrote to his sweetheart back home and another soldier wrote to his daughter after being wounded in action - it really makes one wonder whether the two of them survived the Great Patriotic War and went on to live their lives as best as they could.

It is letters like these that help put a human face to history - all of which would not have been possible without your translation help to someone halfway around the world.

To you, goes a word of great appreciation and recognition.

So thank you once again, and I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018 ahead :)

Hello friend,

Thanks for your warm words.
I see now, there is one thing I missed. It is not clear from English text, but it is absolutely clear from Russian. One letter was written by woman. Perhaps she was no soldier, because she is female. The second letter (letter for daughter) was written by male, soldier, here you are right.

Best wishes
