    In case you guys don't know, I'm perfectly fluent in Russian, Old Russian, and Ancient Russian (Also called Slavonic), and in my experience, you'd have to be ummm less than intelegent to make those errors.
    For example: too rather than to (typical american error [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] ), and say learnt instead of learned... those have nothing to do with the translation.
    And besides I wouldnt trust Pravda (means Truth) as it is not a very truthful paper [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    An education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.

    News
    Edit: now that i think about it, actually its more of a news/reports.
    derived from a word vesti (news) --> izvestit' (to let know) so yeah izvesliya would be news/reports...
    not roman letters though

    Really? Where are you from?

    I think it was mainly the translation from the Cyrrilic alphabet into the Roman alphabet, which isnt easy to do.

    And I say learnt not learned, I didnt know it was the wrong way to say it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_l_32.gif[/img]
