How to choose the correct
Russian language translation
The fact is that English to Russian language translation clients seldom know what they are paying for, especially when it is a translation into a language other than their own. Whether you are looking for an English to Russian language translation provider to serve your needs regularly, or from time to time, you have to understand that it will be your translator’s words that your Russian prospects will read to get an image of you or your company. The whole reputation and the seriousness of your intentions will be presented by your Russian translator. If it is wrong and inaccurate then all your efforts will be in vain. These sorts of mistakes cause damage which is irreparable. If you did not bother to have your words translated correctly – Then it is taken that you do not care about your Russian prospects, and that you do not respect them, so why should they respect you?english to russian language translation
So who is a good Russian translator you are going to trust your English to Russian language translation project to?
1) A good translator should have studied the language he/she is translating from and should only translate into his/her native tongue.
As a Russian translator I have a Master Degree in Linguistics; I am a specialist of English language, Russian language and literature. I have been speaking Russian since I was born : ). Russian is my native language.
2) Unless the material is of a general nature, it is usually preferable to choose a Russian translator with expertise in a specific area (law, commerce, technology etc) as well as experience in translating documents on that subject. english to russian language translation
During 8 years in the translation industry I have translated thousands of texts of differing nature and accomplished numerous English-Russian translation projects both in-house and as a freelancer. As I have graduated from the University of Foreign Economic Relations, Economics and Law I specialize in the translation of texts of business and legal nature. Being a part of a team of specialist Russian translators I can always help you to have your documents professionally translated virtually in any subject.
3) A good Russian translator is to spend a lot of time in the countries where his/her working languages, English and Russian, are widely spoken.
Language is a living organism; it develops, evolves and therefore is never the same. New technology, inter-relation between languages and many other factors result in new words being born. At the same time, other words are becoming history, are being used rarer and eventually die. That’s why it is absolutely vital for the translator working with certain languages to have resided in a country where the source language (language from which he/she translates) is spoken and be familiar with its culture, business practices and legal systems. If your translator has lived in the country of the target language this is certainly a big plus. Bottom line - being isolated from the culture of language results in inaccuracy of the final translation.
I was born and have lived in 3 different republics of the former Soviet Union, where the Russian language was the state language of that country. For the last four years I have been living and working in the UK, and this has allowed me to develop a better understanding of the English language and its cultural nuances. As a result, I feel that I can translate to a high degree of accuracy. Also, every year I spend some time in Russia to maintain connection with the Russian language while enjoying company of my family and friends : ).
4) Membership of a professional body is essential for a good translator.
I am a member of the Union of Translators
of Russia, the Chartered Institute of Linguists and the Institute
of Translation and Interpreting. These bodies uphold the highest
standards in the industry, and as a qualified member of each organisation,
I have to abide by their strict terms for the provision of quality
and service value.
