    Embroided patch. (1, maybe 2 word)

    Hello there !

    Thanks for the forums entry, firstly.


    It's about a patch I want to buy. (It wouldn't be as bad as a tatoo when you don't know what it means but still ^^)
    I think I know for the first word, being the subject of that patch : "Stalker" (Is it?) But I don't know what the rest means.

    I didn't found a way to use a translator with cyrillic, I tried by visually copying each letter but.. Well, got all over the place ^^

    Thanks !


    Ps: Oh yes, also : I'm not even sure it's russian, btw... Hope I will not be percieved as insulting ^^...

    The text is:

    СТАЛКЕР
    ЖИТЕЛИ ЗОНЫ

    which means ‘Stalker. Inhabitants of the Zone’.

    The letter ‘з’ is written inaccurately on the patch. It looks more like ‘ә’ or ‘э’, but I think the word implied is ‘зоны’. I’m not really into the Stalker games or Strugatskys’ fiction though. Please correct me if I’m not right.
    Please correct my English

    Yes yes it totaly makes sens ! It's that, for sure.

    And it's fun because i was wondering for that letter !
    When copy/pasting one per one, I didn't found any "inverted 6" like that !
    Only remotely looking alike, like those you said.

    Well, if there is a "embroiding typo" I'm not sure I want it anymore ^^

    If I can add : Which word is which ?

    Thanks !

    Stalker is obviously сталкер. Жители is those who live somewhere as in inhabitants, зоны is "of the zone"
    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    Thanks much, you two !

    I feel ashamed thinking myself as a fan of the game's saga, "Inhabitants of the Zone" is precisely the definition of a Stalker in the lore, I should have figured it out by myself..
