Hello,
So as this is the only way to contact the developers, I ask other people to not post anything that is not really important. Thanks for understanding!
------------------------
In Splinter Cell Conviction the huge part is connected to Russians. And there are some objects which have the inscriptions in Russian language. Unfortunately, some of those inscriptions that I met are not correct. I understand one English word may mean 5 different Russian words, and it's the difficulty. Most of other people don't care of it, but you guys have just a great audience in Russia and all those mistakes look funny for Russians. On the other hand, it looks like you don't really care of details. But I'm a big fan of Splinter Cell title and I want your games to have the best quality, so I could help you, if you don't mind. If you want to fix those mistakes by the time the next update comes out, you can contact me. I'd be more than glad to help you!

It's not about saying phrases, it's about writing signboards.

Russian enemies talks very convincingly and even without an accent. It's really impressive work.

But almost every signboard on russian levels in co-op story mode has different mistakes. And texts on it are almost meaningless for russian gamer. That's sad.

Well as you might have noticed there are not the whole phrases in Russian. Russians there almost always say some kind of mixes, like "You don't have the ????, do you?" ("????" means "balls" in Russian.) Of course it would be much better if they had all the phrases that Russians say in Russian language, but I gotta tell you, Ubisoft have digged out the good standard Russian swearings which are really in use here!
But I don't get why that person who's taught them all those words hasn't cared about the inscriptions http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I have to say - that the first time I heard cyka and blyad, I was shocked. And then I laughed.

I do not think the person who helped them with the phrases and words were the same people who hepled with the signs and billboards.
I think it went like this
"Hey. We need some characters to say a few phrases in Russian. And they need to be cursing. Do we know anyone? Oh yeah. I'll bet that Illya guy can give us something."

I think that some of them will be hard to explain. For example jokarnyj babaj (you can hear it there (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFgJMQgUoy8#t=4m19s)).

This phrase taken from Tatar langauge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatar_language) that's why it has few different meanings both in Tatarstan and in the rest of Russia.

babaiy means grandfather or just an old man.
jokarniy babaiy literally means old man that prefers men's asses. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif Old homosexual.

But now babaiy is like night spirit or night creature which hide under the naughty child's bed and catch him if he don't want to sleep and get out of bed during bedtime. Parents use babaiy to calm down their children.

And jokarniy it's like euphemism, this word lost their rude meanings. And means something like cursed or deadly (babaiy).


Of course when I hear this phrase in the game for the first time, I laugh until I cries. Cause like babaiy Archer and Kestrel hides in the darkness and kick some asses. I think, it's brilliant phrase!
