Translit.ru - транслитерация - лучший переводчик с транслита
Here is a handy tool. If you can read Cyrillic (like me) but aren't very handy at knowing the placement of keys on the Cyrillic keyboard (again - like me) then you might find Translit.ru rather helpful.
You basically type in the translit window using your QWERTY keyboard and the text is transliterated into Cyrillic. It appears to support Ukrainian and Belarus (Belarussian?) as well. I haven't played with it too much going the other way, but I see it supports English, so I presume Cyrillic keyboarders can type and have words transliterated into Latin text as well.
Could be a time saver for those who simply haven't mastered the "йцукен" keyboard.
I suppose kids could actually use this to code messages in emails back and forth to each other as well.
