Expanding your business into Russia?

Translate into Russian and successfully expand your business into this important global economy.

Scaling your business to new global markets unlocks a huge potential for growth. But ensuring success in the largest country in the world requires significant preparation. Finding a skilled native Russian translator early on not only helps you get your business ready for expansion but also provides you with expert knowledge of this vast market.

The Russian Federation stretches across Eurasia from Eastern Europe to the Pacific coast. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia became the largest country in the world in terms of territory. In fact, it’s so large that it spans nine time zones.

Accurate Russian translations make you look credible
Like any national market, Russia has its own set of rules and regulations. But beyond the formalities of operating in another country, it’s essential you understand cultural traits and local business protocol.

Unfortunately, there’s no one-size-fits-all strategy. Depending on your sector, one day you may be dealing with a modern entrepreneur, the next day with an old-school Soviet bureaucrat. The way you communicate with each of these individuals is very different, and it is important to tailor your messages accordingly.

Understanding how to speak appropriately to a diverse range of business people is essential. But it’s not something you can learn overnight. So, using professional Russian translators is the most resource-effective way of appearing credible as a foreigner in the market.

Translating into Russian is a legal requirement for many areas of business
All businesses operating in Russia, including those owned by foreign investors, are required to use Russian. This includes everything from bookkeeping, tax reporting and office paperwork to advertising and marketing. Professional legal translation is therefore very important.

Russian translation is essential for compliant business operations
To comply with Russian legislation, you’ll need to prepare some documents. The process for this varies according to which legal structure you choose but should include the following:

• Full company name
• Names and signatures of the company founders
• Details of any directors, if applicable
• The amount and nature of shareholder contributions

The Federal Law On the State Language of the Russian Federation establishes an extensive list of areas where the use of Russian is mandatory.

They include:

Advertising: all advertising in the Russian Federation must be either in Russian or in the particular state language of the individual republic in which the advertising appears.
Consumer protection: under the consumer protection regulations, a consumer should be informed in a clear and accessible manner in the Russian language about the manufacturer (seller), the operating mode of its work and the goods (works, services) it produces or sells.
Media and public performances: all media is expected to be in Russian. Cinema exhibitions and public performances of literature and art also require the mandatory use of Russian.
Education: Russian is mandatory while receiving education in all educational institutions. If you offer educational products or training, this could apply to you.

English is still not widely spoken in Russia
According to a Levada Center poll from 2014, only 11% of Russians speak English, which is why translations in all areas of business are so crucial in this country.

Effective Russian translations are crucial to business growth
Translating your business texts into Russian couldn’t be more straightforward with the right help.

Employing a professional translation company is the best way to produce the material you need to implement this growth. It offers peace of mind that you’ll have high-quality communications that create positive associations with your business.
