Your Russian translator needs to understand the history, culture and language nuances of Russian. Russian belongs to the Indo-European family of languages and is a Slavic language. It shares many characteristics with Belorussian and Ukrainian. Modern Day Russian is rooted in the Old Novgorod dialect. A characteristic feature of the language is the distinction between the consonant phonemes and the palatal secondary articulation in the pairs of all consonants. Russian also shares a trait with English that of the reduction of unstressed vowel sounds. It is one of the more difficult languages to learn for English speakers and therefore you need a competent Russian translator.
Russian text uses a modified version of the Cryllic script for writing. To translate Russian, you need to understand that the language has 5 vowels but different alphabets are used to represent these 5 vowels based on the consonant that precedes them. The consonants can be distinguished as hard and soft. The syllable structure is often daunting for translation because it can consist of 4 consecutive consonants.
Russian translation and interpreting of the different dialects can be challenging. Some linguists argue that there are two distinct regional dialects: Northern and Southern with Moscow lying in the transition zone between the two. Other linguists suggest that there are three regional dialects: Northern, Central and Southern with Moscow being a part of the Central belt. The dialects vary from each other in terms of intonation, vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar. Get a qualified Russian translation agency.
