Russian to English translations [PRO] General / Conversation / Greetings / Letters
Russian term or phrase:s v r u is proto
adding to the fact that there are some letters missing, I don't have any idea of what it can mean, and I don't even know if it's russian or lithuanian, although I think it is russian... but I hope you can help me, because I think it can be important...
yes, I know, I am from that city! the message that came to my phone was " i think s v r u is proto..."... this was the message, and no other words after proto... once, I translated a term that was biolorussian, maybe this is the case... anyway, if any idea come, even if it sounds absurd, let me know, because it can be important...
Daniel, you are running in circles. No, it does not. Even aside of the fact that city of Porto is not in Russia or Lithuania. "i think" - is this your translation? If yes, how does the original sound? What is there after proto?
ok, the original is like this s v r u is proto... the only possible variation is s v r uis proto... or maybe s v r u is proto as only one word with missing vowels, because the term came to my phone, and usually the missing letters are vowels... but the original is the first one...
Daniel, it makes absolutely no sense and does not look like Russian at all. Maybe if you could give a whole sentence keeping all spaces true to whatever original you have, we would be able to determine the language, for starters?
maybe it can help if I say that I was talking about school, but I am not sure it has something to do with that... I am guessing it can be confirming or refusing something... I hope it help... thank you...
