Famous Russian technical illustrations have been translated into English, PDF.



I translated the famous Soviet and Russian technical illustrations into English and made a pilot album in PDF format. I have a lot of scanned pages from classic magazines and almanacs. I removed the original inscriptions and made inscriptions in English, or made English inscriptions on top of the original Russian. Illustrations of a large format are collected in an album in PDF format.

There are two parts in this album. Soviet classical technical illustration and Russian modern technical illustration. About 70 - 80 sheets. All translated into English. The first part: Soviet projects of nuclear trains, airship and aircraft; Soviet cars of the future, Underwater colonies, orbiting colonies, colonies on the moon and Venus, Gagarin ship Vostok, space sailboat, nuclear submarine, underwater tanker projects, ekranoplan projects, giant Soviet B-12 helicopter, American micro aircraft Bede, Soviet airplane Ruslan, Tu 144 and Concord, Soviet helicopters, a Soviet space communications ship, a Soviet underwater house and a catamaran, Soviet robot projects, a Soviet all-terrain vehicle, projects of floating cruise hotels, magnetoplans, projects of future cities and power stations Si, the Soviet dams. And much more. The second part. Russian illustrations before the millennium. Real Soviet ekranoplans, hydrofoils, hovercrafts, giant aircraft, projects of floating tanks, atomic experimental aircraft, early Soviet shuttles, the Soviet project of a flying submarine, German flying disks and more.

I can only imagine the amount of work you put into this. Translating such an important piece must be very difficult. I would need a lot of training and preparation in order to be able to translate something like this. My English is definitely not that bright, but I’m currently on a journey to achieve a better English level. I work pretty hard each week, having lessons and tutorial sessions for about two hours per day. I actually don’t pay anyone to teach me, but instead do all the work online and free. I usually practice with different grammar exercises, such as quotation marks worksheets. This method clearly works for me, so why pay somebody else to teach me, when I can do it alone?
