As with all languages, when providing translation services in the Russian language, there are linguistic and cultural obstacles present. When communism fell, Russia began opening up her economy and joined the free market. Russian is one of the world's top ten spoken languages with 150 million people speaking it. And it is the ninth most used language on the web.
While the Russian language may look simple to translate since it belongs to the Indo-European language family, it has its own sets of hurdles. One such hurdle is the limited vocabulary of the Russian language. Some English words do not have an equivalent in the Russian language. For example, the English word “insurance claim” doesn't have a Russian equivalent. In such situations, an experienced translator would know to explain the concept of insurance claim instead of finding a Russian word for it. And in Russian, many words have more than one meaning.
In Russian, the word order doesn't matter unlike in English and in Russian, different placement of the same words can alter the meaning of a sentence. For example, an English sentence like I went to the shop, can be translated into Russian as either я пошел в магазин or пошел я в магазин (which literally means went I to the shop) or в магазин пошел я (which literally means, to the shop went I).
Another challenge translators face is that in Russian, there are three genders in the language, as well as a formal and an informal form. So a word like “you” can be translated in several different ways depending on the context of the original content.
At Wordwise, our experienced linguistic professionals are aware of the language hurdles faced when translating from English to Russian and vice versa. Our translators treat the Russian language and culture with respect because the Russian language has been around for a long time even though the development of her economy is at a fairly young stage. As such you can be assured of high quality and accurate translation of your content.
