About Russia – from russia with love
What comes to your mind when you think of Russia? The famous James Bond movie titled ‘From Russia With Love’? The capital Moscow?
With more than 170 million speakers of the language in the world, the Russian language indeed has a significant global presence. It is the 7th most spoken language in the world and the most spoken out of all Slavic languages. Russian is also popular among communities in the United States, Norway, Ukraine and Romania.
Do you also know that Russian is also the most widespread language of Eurasia?
With the fall of Communism, Russia is slowly but surely enroute to a free market and world participation. This also means that the market in Russia, although huge, is still largely untouched. If you want a first-mover’s advantage, you perhaps should consider Russia as a destination for market penetration.
In addition, a quarter of scientific publications are written in Russian language, which shows the significance the language in our world.
Fun fact: If you are planning to become an astronaut, learning Russian is a must! Russian is known as one of the official languages of space, and in case of emergencies, some instructions are given in Russian. Believe it or not but if you want to become an astronaut, a mandatory homestay in Moscow is necessary as part of the training?
about the Russian language
If you are thinking of picking up the Russian language, you may be intrigued by the mysterious nature of this language at first. This is evident when you examine the Russian Cyrillic alphabet. There are 33 letters, which are divided into 10 vowels, 21 consonants and 2 letters, which do not have any sound. Each letter can be capital or small. Due to its uniqueness, beginners can find learning how to master the language to be both exciting and overwhelming at the same time. The grammar and punctuation of the Russian language is also a great challenge for many. Yet, learning Russian can be a very worthwhile experience.
There are about 200,000 words in the Russian language. You will be surprised that many words have more than one meaning!
professional russian translation for the russian market
When it comes to translation, it is definitely not as simple as it seems. There are 12 variations with Russian nouns, depending on how they are used in a sentence. The number of verb variations is also hard to count, as the ending depends on verb tense, gender, mood, and amount. In view of all this, all of these factors contribute to a word form which is highly context-specific. Just to illustrate the above, simply by swapping two words in a sentence, you can totally change its mood and tone.
It is also a different ball game altogether when you look at rules governing the use of punctuation. For example, the Russian language typically uses the so-called chevrons («») instead of quotation marks. When translating from English into Russian, the text expands approximately 15%. You have to bear this in mind especially when it comes to layout of translated text. Do cater space for such expansion.
Yes. There are much more things to consider than just getting someone who knows Russian to handle translation into Russian. As the Russian saying goes ‘Sem’ raz otmer, odin otrezh’, which means to measure seven times, cut once. It means to take any action, precise planning is required for accuracy.
Hence, it is important to engage the appropriate linguist. Do things right the first time, so that you do not have to do it again!
