View Full Version : 1930s Russian aircraft document translation help

6th May 2015, 06:41
Hello all

I'm inquiring if anyone could point me in the right direction or have contacts to help translate into English the soft copy of a 1930s Russian aircraft construction document and plans please?
The document is 181 pages long of text, diagrams, numeric tables etc.

In addition to bi-lingual fluency the person(s) should ideally be knowledgeable with aircraft terminology and wood and metal aircraft construction techniques. I work with Russian software engineers who advise that the language is dated with some terms and words (eg types of wood) that are unknown to them. I have the contents page translated as this is the least technical.

I have sourced various contacts via LinkedIN but sadly no progress is forthcoming hence asking here.
Automated translation programs/services are of no help because of the specific technical content of the document.

I appreciate any contacts and guidance please.

Thank you kindly.

Just a suggestion, if you can cite the document perhaps someone has already done the translation.

So far none appears to have been undertaken or reported to have been.
The aircraft is the Shavrov SH-2
