    Hello, I would greatly appreciate if I could recieve help translating this passage from the book "Чук и Гек". Thanks again



    Жил человек в лесу возле Синих гор. Он много работал, а работы было всё больше и больше, и ему нельзя было уехатъ домой в отпуск.
    Наконец, когда наступила зима, ему сталу совсем грустно. начальники поэтому разрешили ему послать своей жене письмо, чтобы она приезжала вмесме с ребятами к нему в гости.
    ребят у него было двое - Чук и Гек.
    А жили они с матерью в далёком огромном городе, лучше которого и нет на свете.

    There was a man who lived in a forest by the Blue Mountains. He worked hard, but his job was becoming tougher and tougher, and he wasn't allowed to go home for a vacation.
    Finally, when winter arrived he became very miserable. So his bosses allowed him to send a letter to his wife inviting her to come and visit him with their kids. He had two boys - Chuk and Gek. They lived with their mother in a far-away sprawling city, the best in the world.


    I've changed stuff slightly to make it read well in English.

    It's a very good translation. Except Чук turned into Чак

    Is there a way to transliterate short Russian у into English without turning it into а or a long у (Chook, for example)?
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Pooshkin...

    And Gek, strangely, was not turned into Heck ( Гарри-Harry, etc ).
    Russian is tough, let’s go shopping!
