Census data shows that only about 5% of the Russian population speaks or even understands English. Such low levels of English often cause problems for companies doing business in Russia. Netflix recently found this out to its detriment. It’s 2016 market launch caused a social media backlash as the video-streaming giant failed to translate it’s user menus into Russian. And, only a fraction of its mainly English-language programme library has been subtitled.

Russian is written using the Cyrillic script, which was one of the trickiest alphabets to standardise for the computer era. You should always have your online and printed content thoroughly reviewed before you run off hundreds of brochures or launch a new website. You should also be aware that not all fonts are available with Cyrillic language encoding. So, you may wish to take advantage of Dot Comma’s specialist multilingual DTP/graphic design services.

Russian translation process

  • Project kick-off

    Before putting pen to paper, we sit down with you to work out exactly what you want your Russian translation to achieve. This information feeds into the rest of the Russian translation process.

  • Translator matching

    We only use professional, native Russian translators. But, knowing the language isn’t enough. So, all our Russian translators are specialists in areas like law, finance, marketing, etc.

  • Translation and proofreading

    During the translation stage, we are on hand to answer Russian translation queries. And, if you’ve opted for our Premier service, we’ll arrange a review of the translation by a second professional Russian translator.

  • Quality review

    Just before we return your Russian translation to you, we check it in-house using our specially-designed QA checklist. This checks in particular for accuracy and consistency of dates, numbers, etc.

  • Delivery

    Once your document has been translated into Russian and checked, we then send it back to you in your chosen format, i.e. digital or hard copy. But we won’t send anything back, until we’re 100% happy with it.
