Thanks for writing!

I am taking the above as a tip for Ukrainian translators, which I assume  
comes from a person knowledgeable enough in Ukrainian to provide the tip.

Paraphrasing the author above:
The Latin word «script» is better translated into Ukrainian as «письмо»  
("writing"), which is preferred over «скрипт» ("scenario").

I invite the author as well as other volunteers who master Ukrainian to  
add to that tip.

I haven't written it in a while; I invite all volunteers to share  
translation tips, and tips in the languages they master, in this forum  
(please, use flags in your subject line to help people identify the topic  
by its subject line).
