Russian Translation Services
Russian translation services are becoming increasingly important as a result of the growing demand in the energy sector, one of Russia’s most critical economic sectors. Textronics Communications Ltd. provides highly professional Russian translation services coupled with exceptional customer service at a competitive price.
The Russian language is considered to date from before the year 1000 AD when the main ethnic group across Russia spoke dialects that were closely related and were known as old East Slavic. Following the spread of Christianity this became Old Church Slavonic. Written Russian grew out of the Slavonic writings of the church. The Russian alphabet was originally made up of forty three letters using a derivative of the Cyrillic alphabet. The number of letters was later reduced to thirty three letters by Lenin and the Bolsheviks. It is this number of letters that are in the Russian alphabet today.
Russia is the largest country in the world. Russian is the mother tongue of an estimated 150 million people and is Europe’s most spoken single language. Apart from Russia itself, Russian native speakers exist in Ukraine, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan. In Russian speaking countries there are also over one hundred minority languages that exist alongside the official language. There is a trend for minority language speakers to be bilingual with Russian as the second language. Many minority languages are considered endangered and close to extinction. The importance of Russian is reflected by it being an official language in many international bodies. For example, along with English and French amongst others, it is one of the official languages of the United Nations (UN). The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) lists it as an official language and it also has official status at the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Tourism Organisation (WTO). Professional Russian translation services therefore have tremendous importance in a global institutional and commercial context.
Russia has long been a major exporter of natural resources. It is a vast country and accounts for approximately twenty percent of global natural gas and oil production. As the country has huge reserves it has long been a target for investment opportunities by international companies. For these foreign investors it is crucial to have access to strong expertise in the Russian language and the Russian culture in order to communicate and succeed.
For any company doing business in Russia it is vital to employ a top Russian translation provider at the very onset. Russian is so complex that without employing a native Russian translator or Russian translation company the results for a foreign business looking to invest could be disastrous. The complexities of Russian translation cannot be underestimated. It is not just the Cyrillic letters of the alphabet that cause problems; the sentence structure and grammar are also completely different. Nouns have either feminine, masculine or neuter gender forms with different endings for both the singular and the plural. People learning to speak Russian have long stumbled when it has come to grammar and pronunciation.
As a final point, it is important to emphasise that if a company wants to explore economic opportunities in Russia then communicating in the Russian language with a native translator will considerably increase their chance of success.
