Russian translation services
On-time delivery guaranteed, with no surcharges ever
An eye for detail
Thanks to the continuously expanding economic, political and cultural relations, there is an increasing need for Russian translations. Compared to its large geographical spread, the range of Russian dialects is quite limited, with the literary language based on the Moscow area Central Russian dialects. There are approximately 200,000 words in the Russian language – as this is relatively few compared to other languages, many words characteristically have several meanings. With the help of our native translators, we are up to speed on the slight nuances and constant changes. In order to avoid making mistakes, even when we translate the most complex texts, three experts work on each project: a translator, an editor and a proofreader. All of them work as a full-time translator with at least 5 years’ experience in translation, are native speakers of Russian and hold a degree in translation.
Translating specialist documents from Russian or to Russian
We mainly offer translations from English, French, German and Hungarian into Russian, but we are also comfortable when the source language is another European language, while we naturally translate out of Russian too. We undertake the translation of countless types of documents, including clinical trial documentation, technical manuals and licence agreements.
We guarantee the very highest quality for all translations we undertake. We expect the translators at Albion Languages to be almost as experienced in the topic of the translation as the author of the document. In the case of technical, scientific and medical translations, for example, the author and the target audience often have a degree in medicine or a PhD – just like our translators.

The Russian language
Russian is a world language in the Eastern Slavic language family which has the most native speakers, about 170 million people in all. An additional 110 million people speak it as a second language. 19th century realist Russian writers played an important role in the development of modern Russian, e.g. Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky, and above all the Romantic poet, Pushkin who rejected the use of archaic grammar structures and vocabulary and wrote his poems in the spoken language of his age thus making it easy for today’s readers to understand as well.
Did you know?
If you want to be an astronaut, the Russian language is an obligatory part of the training. Russian is the international language of space, and in emergency situations, astronauts are given instructions in Russian.
The only adjective in Russian with one syllable is “злой” (zloy), which means “angry.”
Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet created by the missionaries, Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius in the 9th century.
Russian names consist of three parts: first name, father’s (patronymic) name and family name. The patronymic name is always formed from the father’s first name. For example, if the father is called Mikhail, his son’s middle name will be Mikhailovich and his daughter’s will be Mikhailova. In everyday life, the father’s name and the first name are often used together. If someone is called Alexander Mikhailovich, it sounds as if we used the adjective honourable.
There are and have been pidgin languages which combined elements of Russian. The most well known pidgin languages developed as a result of the cohabitation of people who spoke closely related languages and include the Ukrainian-Russian (Surzhyk) and the Belarusian-Russian (Trasianka) pidgins. But there were also Norwegian-Russian and Kyakhta Russian-Chinese pidgins and there is the still existing “Rusinol” language which is a mixture of the Cuban Spanish and Russian languages.
