What do these words mean? I can't really put them into an online translator since they are not cyrillic characters.

naiti
rasskazhi
straxovoi'
nachinaiu
nazivat'
pokrasivela

poschastlivilos'
nastoaiashaia

I got an email from a Russian friend and I am trying to figure out what it says ... those are the words I don't know, but the rest was easy enough for me to understand it.

OK. I didn't want to do your homework for you or something like that


mechtal = dreamed
naiti = to find
rasskazhi =tell me (as in "tell me a story")
straxovoi' = Not sure. somehting to do with insurance, maybe?
nachinaiu = I am starting
nazivat' = to call
pokrasivela = became more beautiful
begaet = runs
poschastlivilos' = got happier
nastoaiashaia = real, genuine
v obshem = in general

HTH!

Wish you guys were here. I have a case with a pro se (unrepresented) Russian plaintiff. She is not proficient in English. Her son translates, but he's not exactly unbiased.
