As part of an effort to familiarize Russian-speaking audience with Less Wrong materials, I am participating in an ongoing translation of a certain sequence of texts to Russian.

Now I need volunteers who are willing to read the text and give feedback on its quality. If you are native Russian speaker and can dedicate around 40 minutes to reading the sequence, please drop me an email to nickolai@intelligence.org and I'll give you the link. Later I'll update this post with an information on which text this was and which feedback I have got (your exact words can remain private if you wish).

I'm doing it this way so that name of the text and other's opinion won't influence your decision to participate and your opinion. Frankly, I think this mode of interaction should be a standard option in popular forum software, but it isn't.

Update (24 May): I have only got 1 (one) volunteer to date. I would like more Russian speakers to read this. If you are a native Russian speaker, could you please consider proofreading the text?

Hello.

I think you aren't aware of already existing Russian translation project. You can view it here.

Sure, I'm not.

But my point still holds: anyone, if you are interested in proofreading the text I have in mind, please drop me an email to nickolai@intelligence.org.
