You can try:
LANG=ru_RU.UTF-8 man 2 read
It is translated.
So the translation start working now, although not all the entries are
translated yet.
Comment 3 Chester Cheng 2007-08-29 01:04:38 EDT
We don't translate man pages in-house at the moment.  Is there any possibility
we get a version from community?
Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2007-10-02 00:56:00 EDT
Here are some stats from current fedora man-pages* showing
how many manpages are available for each language:

  7 da
138 uk
200 cs
265 it
303 ru
686 de
711 ko
854 es
1268 pl
2534 fr
2641 ja
3247 en

So Russian is a little below the middle, but not doing too badly.
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2008-05-01 00:10:50 EDT
Moving back to owner.  Maybe we should move this to Fedora or close wontfix?
Comment 6 Ivana Varekova 2008-05-02 07:40:27 EDT
The latest version of man-pages-ru I have found is 0.98 (29.03.2005) which is
almost the same as rhel4 version - there are a few changes and 6 new man-pages.
I can't find any other source of Russian man pages. 
Comment 7 Ivana Varekova 2008-05-05 04:44:58 EDT
For now I'm closing this bug as WONTFIX, I have not found any other Russian
man-pages sources.
