We develop an approach for solving the string equations of motion and Virasoro constraints in any background that has some (unfixed) number of commuting Killing vector fields. It is based on a specific ansatz for the string embedding. We apply the above-mentioned approach for strings moving in AdS3×S3×T4 with a 2-form NS-NS B-field. We succeeded to find solutions for a large class of string configurations on this background. In particular, we derive dyonic giant magnon solutions in the Rt×S3 subspace and obtain the leading finite-size correction to the dispersion relation.
