"...We are back. We kept silent about the war for many years, remembering friends that are gone among us. But, keeping silent doesn't mean forgetting, and we have nothing to be ashamed of..." -A.V. Smorchkov. Fighter pilot, colonel, Hero of the Soviet Union.

I Hope this helps you.

That's not the interview, so I'm not interested in correcting that part.

Might help if you gave a little more info. You need help translating English to what? Or are you translating something to English?

What is the other language?

I have already translated 16 page interview with VVS pilot, and need to check that people will understand what I wrote - not only in turms of correct spelling, but in turms of expressions used. language of origin is Russian. I can use help from 2 people...

Well your English grammar is way off, I was just giving you what you implied. I made sense of your gibberish. FO.

Thanks, but I know that my English became rusty, and that's the !!!! reason why I ask for help. And there is no need to show it on someone else's words.

foxfire, that was uncalled for.

FPSOLKOR has been a longtime contributor here, and was just asking for help to present all of us some interviews from the vets we all admire.

There is absolutely no reason to criticize his English, we have a lot of members here who are not native speakers, and we should be cognizant of that fact and appreciative of it.

ESPECIALLY when those same members are trying to give us something that we lack!

FPSOLKOR, I for one really appreciate all the hard work you have put into these interviews and going out of your way to share them with the rest of the non-Russian speakers here.

/S!

Hah. If you think your form of language is better than ours, you need to be checked under the bonnet.

You need a native English speaker to check your English? But most native English speakers can barely spell native. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/59.gif

We have enough twits here as it is. The last thing we need is someone going around insulting a long-time contributor of interviews and other works from retired pilots. FO.

Good one!

I got a good dig in at one of my previous jobs on a English co-worker.

After a torrent of slang laden common British English, I asked him "Could you repeat that in English this time?". Lots of laughter from the international group we were with. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

He popped back with "Thats the bloody Queen's English ya ignorant Yank!"

My response; "Which Queen? Norway?"

The Dutch and Belgian guys there thought it was hysterical at the time. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

A joke I enjoy with my American students (being a Briton):

What's the difference between America and a yoghurt? A Yoghurt would develop a culture if you left it alone for 250 years.
