At PRODOC, only native speakers provide Russian technical translations for a variety of technical sectors.
Trade figures prove relevance of Russian technical translations
At 25.9 billion euros, exports to the Russian Federation grew again in 2017. This increase was 20.2 percent compared to the previous year. In 2018 they remained at roughly the same level. The trade relationship is still far from its peak of 38.1 billion euros in 2012. However, these figures already show that the Russian language is highly relevant for
- Application reports, operating instructions, package inserts, general data sheets
- Brochures and flyers
- CMS data
Accordingly, the main export goods (2017) were as follows
- Machinery – 5.7 billion Euros
- Cars and accessories – 4.1 billion Euros
- Chemicals – 2.9 billion Euros
Use of the Russian language – Utilizing an enormous potential
The potential of technical translations into Russian is huge. Firstly, more than 210 million people speak Russian. And secondly, over 144 million people live in the Russian Federation alone. Russian is thus one of the most widely spoken languages in Europe. This also makes Russian one of the world languages. Especially in post-Soviet countries, Russian is still the preferred official language.
The close relationship to Ukrainian, Belorussian and Rusyn cannot be denied. However, the Cyrillic letters may vary somewhat. Out of the Central Russian dialects established around Moscow, the Russian standard language has developed. A unique feature of the Russian language is that there are six cases that need to be considered in addition to the Cyrillic letters and three grammatical genders.
Special challenges in English to Russian technical translation
As with every major world language, Russian has naturally developed a colloquial language. This must be taken into account in technical translations as well as the technical terminology.
Our technical translators therefore not only master the target language. They combine this knowledge with the specific requirements of the translation job in question. Therefore, it is not only about technically correct work. The important feeling for language, which ultimately makes the documents easy to read, is another key factor.
PRODOC meets the challenges of the Russian language
The written language of Russian naturally presents its own challenge. Like the English language, it is also a letter script. In this case, however, it consists of 33 letters. For the English “SH” alone there are several variants in Russian. There are ten different letters for vowels. Not to mention grammar. However, PRODOC knows how to master the challenges of the Russian language.
PRODOC is certified in accordance with ISO 17100, so every technical translation from English to Russian is reviewed by a second specialist and corrected if necessary.
