Hello Russia!


The news is spreading! Today, we received a message from Russia where Maksim Zinchenko translates all our news into Russian. Great job, Maksim!

I'd like to inform BlenderNation that on my blog I translate all news of your site and some articles from English into Russian almost in real time (when I'm near my computer). Maybe it'll be interesting for russian new Blender users that don't know English quite well.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Thank you, Maksim, for spreading the wealth of blender and blender information to your comrades. Hopefully you may strt a trend there in Russia.

  2. It's such a wonderful initiative, keeping people informed of blender in so many languages :)

    :D I wonder if they are not in fact different incarnations of Bart from different countries though...

    Bartovitch from
    al-Bart from
    Bali-Dou from
    Ba-To from

    x) just kidding (?)

  3. It is great to see the movements from different coutries and especially from Russia here, since most of Russian blender projects looks abandoned. Translation is really cool thing when it is good because when you do not have a need to translate you have more brain resources to understand :)

    Good luck

  4. Grate work, Maksim!
    I'm werry happy a can send people from local Tech College who are intrested in blender to your site.

    Are you planning to add Russian Blender Community news?

  5. Спасибо за перевод. Большой объём работы проделан. Уже RSS себе добавил.

    Thank you for translating this site. You done a great job. I already added the RSS feed.

  6. Nice to meet you, mate. Thanks for the international support. If only the politicians could touch the level of international support the FOSS world sees daily.
