Well, native language of FAR developers is Russian.
Someone has to translate it to English.

Yes, we know.
Any help in the translation of these sections is very welcome.

Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to create an unnecessary entry in Mantis.

I have used FAR for years but I have never come across any Russian text before, so I thought it was some kind of bug and not a missing translation. I would love to help but unfortunately I don't know Russian.

It's possible to use Google translate (or any other machine translation software) to get basic understanding.
Then you could describe things in English.

It's hard work though.
