The basic potential for errors with translation from the Cyrillic to the Latin alphabet
Of course, the first and most obvious hurdle in a possible translation from Russian into English (or vice versa) is the occurrence of different characters. The English language uses Latin letters, whereas Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet, based on Greek.
The stumbling blocks of grammar
In grammar, there is too much to note. Articles would be a good example. The concept of the article is commonplace in the English language. The Russian language, however, has no articles at all. Every noun in Russian has one of three genders, so articles are not needed. However, this might quickly give rise to misunderstandings. The translator must, therefore, be accordingly and professionally trained. There are significant differences with regard to verbs. The Russian language, for example, distinguishes only between an activity that has been completed and one that is not yet complete. This is expressed in Russian with affixes. In addition, there are only a few verbs in the Russian language. In English, however, there are a wide variety of "progressive" and "Perfect Tense" forms that must be worked with by the translator. When compared with the Russian language, the system of modal verbs in English is extremely complex. Because only a native speaking translator has the necessary grasp of English, we only use them for our translations. They ensure flawless translations, both in terms of grammatical and orthographic elements. In addition to academic training as a translator, our translators also have relevant knowledge in at least one field of specialization. Russian texts of law, technology, marketing or medicine are translated without a glitch. You can count on us! Send us an email today with the documents you want translated.
