English - Russian Translations

Post  Mr. Digby on Thu Apr 14, 2016 9:55 pm

Andrew, you said you may be able to help with these and do a better job than Google Translate Wink

Here are the English phrases used in the OOBs. I need the Russian equivalents using the Roman alphabet, not Cyrillic.

RANKS

General of Cavalry
General of Infantry
Lieutenant General
Major General
Colonel
General Staff (of a corps or of an army)
Chief of Staff

TITLES

Prince
Grand Duke
Grand Duchess (as in "Grand Duchess Catherine's Battalion")

UNIT DESIGNATIONS (I list several as I understand gender and possessive tense affects the grammar)

Division (of infantry, cavalry or artillery)
Brigade (of infantry or cavalry)
Regiment (of infantry, musketeers, grenadiers, guards or militia / of cuirassiers, dragoons, uhlans, hussars, "light horse", Cossacks, Bashkirs or Tartars and guard variants of these)
Squadron (of Cuirassiers, Dragoons, Uhlans, Hussars, "Light Horse", Cossacks, Bashkirs or Tartars and guard variants of these)
Battalion (of infantry, musketeers, grenadiers, guards or militia)

Reserve (as in a reserve corps, reserve division or an artillery reserve unit)
1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc (I assume these are 1-y, 2-y, 3-y, etc. Higher numbers appear to be 21-ya, etc, unless this is a gender variation?)

It is quite possible that places and peoples names might change with different gender or possessive tenses, so we could have a city 'X' that is spelled differently for having a hussar regiment named after it, and, say, a dragoon or infantry regiment. If this is the case we may have to go through the OOB unit by unit, a huge task, but one I am keen to get right because I think getting these things right is important.

Thank you very much for any help you can give, its very much appreciated.

Thanks for your help on this Andrew. I am now editing the campaign master OOB to reflect the correct spellings!

Using the Roman alphabet, how does one write "Army of the Left and Reserve" and "Army of the Right" in Russian?

I'll give a transcription and a transliteration so you can choose which one you like the most.

"Army of the Left and Reserve"

Armiya Levogo i Rezervy (Translit)

Armiya Lyevova i Rezervi (Transcript)

"Army of the Right"

Armiya Pravogo (Translit)

Armiya Pravova (Transcript)
