Russify your computer...

Rhymes with crucify…

You have options. I recommend that you download the keyboard layout “Russian for Gringos 3.” Follow the directions on that webpage—they’re very clear. You’ll first download a small application, unzip it, install it, then change your Regional or Language options (depending on what Windows platform you’re using). The keyboard is homophonic, so when you type “b” you get the Russian б, when you type “s” you get с, etc.

Your other option is to use To type in Russian, just click inside the box and start typing. It’s homophonic, too, though a bit different from the Gringo setup.

In either case, you’ll be typing по-русски in a мигом.
