The only people willing to help at short notice

I was in a desperate need to have a same day certified translation of a Chinese document into English for a passport application. In fact it was 2pm when I found out it was necessary. By searching on Google I tried 4 other companies which couldn't get it done on time. This was the only company that would go the extra mile and help me out. I had excellent service and would highly recommend them above all other translation service companies. I can't thank them enough!

FAQ

WHICH COUNTRIES SPEAK RUSSIAN?

As Russia, or the Russian Federation, is the largest country in the world spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia it is no surprise that Russian is one of the most widely spoken languages. Russian is an official language in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan but these aren't the only countries where people speak Russian. The language is also used for occasional government functions in Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan.

WHAT LANGUAGES ARE SPOKEN IN RUSSIA?

Of course, Russian is the most widely spoken language in Russia and is the only official language on a national level but around 35 other languages are considered official languages in various regions of Russia. There are over 100 minority languages spoken in Russia today as a result of mass migration. This is why it is so important to use a professional translation service when you need Russian translation as tiny differences in dialect can create a totally different meaning, for high-quality translation by expert linguists always use Absolute Translations.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RUSSIAN AND OTHER SLAVIC LANGUAGES?

All Slavic languages have a lot of similarities due to being so close geographically and having a complex cultural history. Because of this Russian is very similar to other Eastern European languages, such as Belarusian and Ukrainian. In addition to this there is another language called Rusyn, which is not always recognised as a distinct language, by some it is considered a dialect of Ukrainian.

WHY USE A TRANSLATION COMPANY THAT EMPLOYS NATIVE SPEAKERS FOR RUSSIAN TRANSLATION?

As every language has unique distinctive features which make it different from other languages when translating Russian or other Slavic languages it is especially important to use a professional translation company that only uses Russian speakers who are translating their mother tongue.

Russian translation requires detailed cultural knowledge of the region as it is all too easy to miscommunicate translation Russian if you are not well versed in all the regional variations and social context of the original author or speaker.

Whether you need transcription of the spoken language or written documents translated Absolute Translations can match you with a professional Russian translator who will walk you through every step of the translation process ensuring you get accurate, high-quality translations every time.

WHAT IS THE CYRILLIC ALPHABET?

The Cyrillic Alphabet is the third official script of the European Union, following the Latin and Greek scripts. It is used or adapted by over 100 different languages, mainly in Russia, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe. In some of these variations different letters are used, some are variations of the standard Cyrillic letters, and some languages use a combination of Greek or Latin alphabets.

When translating English to Russian a skilled translator must convert the Latin alphabet into Russian text, this is a complex process that only the most professional translators can be entrusted to do.

If you are looking for a Russian translation agency Absolute Translations are a service you can trust as a qualified linguist will be ensuring all your words are translated efficiently and accurately, we only use certified Russian translators, working in their own language, who have a minimum of five years experience doing the professional translation.

IS THE RUSSIAN ALPHABET THE SAME AS THE CYRILLIC ALPHABET?
Slightly confusingly, the Russian alphabet and the Cyrillic are two different things, though many people don't realise there is actually a difference between the two. The Cyrillic alphabets are a writing system, whereas the Russian alphabet is just one of the many Cyrillic alphabets. Since the Russian alphabet is the most widespread variation of Cyrillic which is possibly why people often believe that they are the same thing.

HOW DO RUSSIAN TRANSLATION SERVICES HELP YOU GROW YOUR BUSINESS?
Professional translation is absolutely key to doing business in Russian markets as if you do not speak to your target audience in their target language, you cannot properly communicate your business messages to them.

Business translations need to be done by professional language services as Russian document translation is notoriously difficult to get right, which means if you want to translate documents into Russian you need to use a professional translator who will quickly and accurately convert your message.
DO PROFESSIONAL TRANSLATORS HELP WITH INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION?

Our Russian document translation service could help you break into the Russian market whether you need help with technical translation, business documents translated, financial reports converted or product descriptions done. Its also hard to ignore that Russian is the 2nd most used language on the internet with 6% of websites appearing in Russian, behind only English as the most common language to do business with online its hard to deny that Russian is important for your business if you want to appeal to a global market.

We understand that international communications can have a huge impact on your business and you need Russian translation services you can trust when marketing to real Russian people, our translation company has been operating for over 20 years and worked with some of the best known international companies such as Coca Cola, HSBC, HP, and Microsoft.

CAN YOU USE GOOGLE TRANSLATE INSTEAD OF PAID RUSSIAN LANGUAGE TRANSLATION SERVICES?

It can be tempting to use Google Translate instead of paying for a Russian translation company when translating English to Russian but if your translation projects are professional or personally important we would always recommend using certified translators.

As translation of Russian is complicated by a different alphabet and its similarities to other Slavic-based languages when using technology instead of a real person to do your translation projects you can often get grammatical errors and other inconsistencies with your translation of Russian.

In addition to not always being the most accurate, if you need legal documents or certified translation it would be much more sensible to use a translation agency as certified translations require a human to sign off the translated document. That's why we offer certified translations of the highest quality, at a competitive price. To find out more simply submit a project request above. Our quotes are priced per word so your word count affects the total cost of your project.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO USE AN EXPERT RUSSIAN TRANSLATOR FOR MEDICAL TRANSLATION?

When translating medical documents or health records from Russian it is vitally important that you use a Russian translation agency to ensure high-quality accurate translation. There are a significant number of words that look or sound the same but have different meanings, which could have a huge impact on the accuracy of the translation. For example, in English, "angina" refers to chest pains but the Russian word Ангина is tonsillitis.
