The term Russification once meant adopting the Russian language or some other Russian attribute by non-Russian communities. (Source: Wikipedia.) In the computer age, it means to be able to view and type in Russian on one's computer, including the abilities to read Web pages, send and receive e-mail, translate Russian documents into English and vice versa, and more.
This site once provided information on how to view Cyrillic in the different operating systems, but the last update was for Windows 98. Because of the advances in software, plus the huge number of other sites providing similar information, please use the links below if you cannot view Cyrillic on your PC or MAC. Sadly, some of these sites have not been updated for a long time either. Good luck!
If a font you download does not show up
after you install it in Windows XP (and, I suppose, Vista), do this: Open
Control Panel and click on "Fonts." Right click on the font you just
installed and click "Properties." Near the bottom of that window (in
Windows XP, at least) it will tell you it may not be safe. Click the box
to allow you to use it. It should appear now in Word or other software
