Russia as a trade partner

Situated neatly between East and West, Russia as an exporter and important is a significant trade partner for sides. Russia’s influence inevitably extends beyond its own borders and into formerly Soviet territories. The Russian language therefore has the benefit of giving access to an even larger population, significantly enhancing your business’ reach. 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.

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.

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.
