Easy Digital Home Movies – Russian Translation

Posted by

At about 5pm today, UPS dropped off a box. Inside was this note:
Enclosed please find copies of your book, which have been translated into RUSSIAN. We hope you are pleased with the translation.
Best Regards,
International Rights Department

And 5 copies of my book, Easy Digital Home Movies, translated to Russian.
They even converted my name to Cyrillic characters (bottom right on the cover, above Que). I honestly wouldn’t know whether I should be pleased or not, since I can’t read Russian, so I’ll have to assume the translators know what they’re doing. The thing I found most curious is that basic application commands in Windows Movie Maker are still in English.
