Matvey Palchuk has produced a seminal document on the Russification of the Macintosh Computer, a collection of documents at the University of Pittsburgh dedicated to enabling Macintosh users with an Internet connection to work with Russian text in KOI8 format. You will find instructions that are focused on acquiring and installing the necessary system resources, such as KOI-8 fonts, keyboard layout, and (optional) Russian script or Russian version of System 7.0.1. A major part of this site is also dedicated to configuring client applications of such Internet services as TELNET, e-mail, WWW, USENET, etc.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR APPLE MACINTOSH "SPEAK" RUSSIAN Learn exactly how to do it. You get a list of system resources (e.g. the Russian version of System 7), the MacCyrillic.FAQ, and some notes on configuring MacTCP applications and terminal emulation, and other materials on russification.
Mac users interested in reading Russian should follow this very useful link! The author of that material knows more about Russian-speaking Macs than anyone at GlasNet. Or, maybe, on the whole Web!...
The Russification of Macintosh isn't about an international takeover of Apple Computers. Rather, its sole purpose is to distribute shareware programs and keyboard layouts that allow Mac owners (and businesses) to read and write the Cyrillic alphabet. The second edition (Feb. 1996) of the site is significantly improved with solid layout and a simplified four-step process for installing the programs on your Mac. Every link that you need is embedded within the text and clear instructions help you along at every step. More detailed explanations are available for those who wish to 'nerd out' on the technical side of the process, but this is optional, not required.
