Sorry, i can't help you w/ the translation. But DAMN I wish I could speak/read/write Russian. I think the cerylic (sp?) alphabet is beautiful.

Try Anya, she usually checks her thread "Irish-Russian..." in Discotheque, find her there, she's great and I'm sure she would help ya

my brother and SIL have lived in Russia now for about 7 years, and he's fairly fluent...

you could also try http://babelfish.altavista.com/

i haven't tried it with Russian, but seems to work for French and Spanish...

Thanks, everyone. I may lurk and see if I can locate Anya in that "Discoteque" place (but isn't that a singles joint?).

Here's what I need: the lyrics to "Beautiful Day" in Russian.

My wife is going on a mission trip to Russia and they would like to use the song as part of their opening program each morning.

We both use the Altavista Babelfish at work from time to time but it sometimes comes out rather goofy (at least with Spanish, French and Japanese). But we may use that and the google site as a start.

Well, I'm Russian and I could help you out if you haven't found help already. I'm not sure whether I'd be much of a poet, though,
