About this title:

Synopsis: This experimental dictionary will help all Russian speakers and translators find just the right Russian word or expression for often difficult English figures of speech and idiomatic expressions. Don’t just rely on a word-to-word translation into Russian, but remain faithful to the spirit, meaning and imagery of the English expression. Serious American students studying Russian will also find it extremely useful and enriching.

About the Author: Michael Kayser once served as a English to Russian translator in the political section of the USSR division of the Voice of America. One performance evaluation read, in part, as follows: His mastery of the Russian language often exceeded that of his Russian-born colleagues. Mr. Kayser possesses an incredibly large vocabulary and a wonderful feel for the language and the ability to use it effectively and with style. During the 1990 s, Kayser handled a multitude of assignments as an English to Russian simultaneous contract interpreter for the U.S. Department of State. He lives in Canton, OH, with his wife, Marina, a native of St. Petersburg, Russia.
