Most of you will have english as the default language, but if you don't, all of this works just the same.
You will see a white box under "Installed services" that shows what languages you have installed.

Click "Add" and you will see a drop-down menu.
On the first drop down menu, select Russian.
And Russian (typewriter) should automatically appear in the bottom drop down menu.
Click Ok.

Then at the bottom of the original language screen, it should say "Language Bar..."
Click that and you will see check boxes. Check the FIRST and the THIRD box.
Click Ok then "Apply"

Now, in the bottom right corner of your screen (on the navigation bar NOT your desktop) you should see a little box that says "EN" or letters that represent your default language.
Click on that little box and you should have choices. Russian should be one of those choices.
Upon selecting "Russian," you should be able to type in Cyrillic. However, of course the Cyrillic alphabet doesn't correspond to the English alphabet so you will just have to figure out what goes where. I, myself, have ordered Cyrillic keyboard stickers.

Check it out



Just thought I'd mention that you can also use the on screen keyboard.
Programs> Accessories> Accessibility> On Screen Keyboard

You can use that along with and after setting the computer to type in Cyrillic.

What is a dick in russian? Like an informal, obscene word for penis? I never find these in dictionaries.
And I´d like to hear other obscene words (curse words etc) in russian too ´cause otherwise I´m never gonna learn them (there are no tv series to teach me filth). So please..

If you want to dive deeper into Russian slang, I recommend the russian and english wikipedia pages. As beginner's collection of polite words you may try this site. If you can't get enough, use your search engine and type in cyrillic мат. There are lots of interesting links.

Well, there is something I've always been curious about.

In "Ya Tvoya Ne Pervaya", one of the lyrics is pronounced, as far as I can remember, "devochki kak devochki". I read in one translation that this simply means "girls like girls", but in another one, it said, "girls acting like girls". I thought that the former might possibly be the literal translation, and the latter the implied meaning. When I first saw the former translation, though, my first thought was that it meant "girls like girls", as in, girls being emotionally drawn towards other girls. I think the latter implication makes more sense in the context of the song, t.A.T.u's theme at the time, and the lyric in the english version, "girls and girls but you're the one", but with my extremely limited knowledge of the russian language, I cannot know the meaning for sure. Can someone tell me, is "like" an accurate translation of the word pronounced as "kak", and if so, in which sense(s) of the word? I'm sorry if my explanation of my question seemed a bit pedantic and/or unnecessary. That's just the way I am; I have to make sure things are clear.

well it's really like the phrase "girls will be girls" ... like "boys will be boys" ... that's really all it says.
but it doesn't mean "girls LIKE girls" as in girls are interested in other girls.
kak is a word for similes and similarities.

Did I tell anywhere that I went to a Russian course and quit a couple of classes?It was much more complicated than I thought and I could see that I can't go on learning Russian in school times.But I learned how to read and write in cyrillic letters
~~~~~~~~~~~
Dudağımda yarım kalan söylenmemiş son sözümdür...
Baki olsa da ayrılık,
Aşk her daim ölümsüzdür...

Varsın eller gönül yarası kapanır sansın,
Kabuğun altında sevgili sen kanayansın...

I'm teaching myself how to read in Russian with the aid of the internet, I'm also learning some Russian phrases but it's tough.

Which is the correct form for a man to say Ya Soshla S Uma? (in cyrillics, please)

EDIT: Nevermind, i asked my friend and she told that it's Я сошел с ума.
