Professional Russian translation
Stretching from St Petersburg in the west to Vladivostok and beyond in the east, Russia has the largest landmass of any country in the world. By landmass, the part of Russia in Europe is the largest European country; likewise the part that falls in Asia is the largest Asian country.
By population it falls some way short of China who tops the leader board, but it is still a force to be reckoned with, boasting an estimated 142 million inhabitants. Such a huge market has enormous potential for multinational companies keen to extend their business. Inevitably, this makes accurate Russian translations vital to the success of your project.
Russia as a trade partner
Situated neatly between East and West, Russia as an exporter and importer is a significant trade partner for both sides. Russia’s influence inevitably extends beyond its own borders and into former Soviet territories. The Russian language therefore has the benefit of giving access to an even larger population, significantly enhancing your business’s reach.
What to expect from your Russian translation
The Russian language uses a different alphabet to English, the Cyrillic alphabet. Russian isn’t the only language to use this alphabet, but is certainly the most prominent. Aside from the alphabet, however, the layout of your text will largely be the same as your English version.
As with any language, it is important to produce accurate and high quality content in Russian to sound professional and credible as a business. That’s where The Language Factory comes in.
Your Russian translation will be handled by native Russian speakers who are fluent in both Russian and English, and have a strong understanding of Russian culture. They will take into account not only linguistic issues but also possible localisation requirements, such as brands, currencies or cultural intricacies.
