Languages based on the Cyrillic alphabet, like Russian and Bulgarian are difficult to learn for most Western people due to the fact that they appear so different from Latin aphabet-based languages like English, Spanish, Portuguese and others. When seeing a word in Cyrilic, many Westerners don't even know how to pronounce it. For that reason, the site RussianLessons.net has issued a little yet useful program that transliterates words between Cyrilic and Latin alphabets, specifically from Russian to English. Thus, you will learn, for example, that the English word "music" is pronounced very similarly to its Russian equivalent, although they are written very differently. Also, you can learn how a Western word would be written in Cyrilic. For example, you can transliterate your name and that of your loved one, as well as some other common words. However, be aware that this program is not a dictionary nor translation software, but merely a transliterator.
The program comes absolutely free of charge and you can download it from the developer's site.
- It only transliterates words, it is not a dictionary
