    please help translate: nu, tak uzh i byt'

    could someone please help translate?


    i'm new to russian and have gotten the hang of reading cyrillic but it's hard for me to translate when it's written out like this:

    nu tak uzh i byt'

    ... russian-english dictionaries only use cyrillic. is there a site that can quickly change the "english" sounding version of these russian words into cyrillic.

    thanks!

    Here:
    http://www.translate.ru/ruscode.asp - choose the 6th option (Латиница >>> Windows-1251)
    nu tak uzh i byt' >>> ну так уж и быть

    One warning though, there are a lot of different transliterating systems, especially on the web, and most just transliterate the Russian by how it sounds. That's why this site may not work with every sample.

    It's also used as "fine"...I'll give you an example

    "Mom can I go and play outside?"
    "Fine, you can go but don't forget to do your homework later..."

    "Мама, я могу пойти поиграть на улице?"
    "Ну так уж и быть, иди, но не забуть про домашнее задание…"

    In those kinds of cases you can use ну так уж и быть
