    Web site translation

    Hi,

    I was given the task of translating a web site into Russian (as a volunteer). A lot of text has been translated already, but I'm worried about the menu items in the top frame: they should be short, descriptive and unambiguous. Here are the english terms:

    Home
    Festival
    Agenda
    Courses
    Lessons (really singing lessons)
    News
    CD's
    Publications
    Addresses

    If you want to look at the site (and laugh at my first attempt), it's http://www.zarjanka.nl

    If anyone has suggestions for the Russian equivalent of some or all of the items, I'd love to hear about it.

    Bye, Pim

    Home - Главная or Домой
    Festival - Фестиваль
    Agenda - Программа
    Courses - Курсы
    Lessons (really singing lessons) - Уроки
    News - Новости
    CD's - CD
    Publications - Публикации
    Addresses - here Контакты

    Correct please: not "По-русский" but "По-русски". Here just "Русский" is better.

    And not "по Голландский", but "поолландски_".
    And I don't know such word "Воркшоп".

    Старинная фольклорная музыка из Низких стран
    Not "из Низких стран", but "из Нидерландов".


    PS. Generally there are many mistakes in Russian.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I know the translation, but there is not such word in Russian, I think.

    There is an english word "workshop", not russian "воркшоп"!

    Espesially, there is not such expression "воркшоп пение"

    Я написал то, что надо написать вместо "воркшоп". (Наверное, пение в мастерской или мастерская пения)

    Аааа, ясно

    Я думаю, тогда, наверное, "мастер-класс пения и танца".

    'Workshop' в смысле коллективных занятий/кружка, как и имеется в виду на сайте, по-русски 'мастерская'? Первый раз слышу. В первоначальном значении да, но в этом?

    Pim,
    your german translation also has some errors and expresions that make no sense. It would be off topic to discuss them here, but you can also post it in the "German Lounge", if you're interested.

    Тоже можно. Мастерская пения - я такое слышал. Если смущает - то можно написать "Кружок пения", но это уже меня как-то коробит.

    Для заглавия можно написать "Занятия пением"
