    A big miserable word

    So what is this supposed to mean?

    Умеют ценить высококвалифицированный труд.

    I think I better go back to reading Harry Potter.

    They can evaluate well-qualified work.

    I think a closer translation, and correct me if I am wrong, is:
    They know how to value highly qualified work
    Hei, rett norsken min og du er død.
    I am a notourriouse misspeller. Be easy on me.
    Пожалуйста! Исправляйте мои глупые ошибки (но оставьте умные)!

    квалификация, квалифицированный etc. is a kind of false friend of the translator. It more often means trained or skilled rather than qualified.

    So the sentence might translate, depending on the context, They know how to value skilled labor.

    Highly qualified sounds ambiguous to me. I'd say highly skilled.

    I'd say there are two stresses here высококвалифицированный

    Russian language words have only one stress.

    Not really. Long words often do have two stresses, one primary and another secondary.

    You can say it two ways. It depends on speed you pronounce the word...

    Bianca needs to learn how to derive words from the root.

    высокий/высоко is a common, easy word
    квалификация, квалифицированный - sounds like the English.

    Sounds like the english, but it ain't as was stated above. It means something different
