The Russian language is the eighth most spoken language based on the number of native speakers and the fourth on the basis of number of speakers globally. Widely spoken in Eurasia, Russian translation is necessary to reach out to a large non-English speaking population.
There are fourteen kinds of Russian dialects commonly used. Also there are over a dozen variants on a finer scale. The Northern Russian dialects are the Arkhangelsk dialect, the Olonets dialect, the Novgorod dialect, the Viatka dialect and the Vladimir dialect. The Southern Russian dialects are the Orel or Don dialect, the Ryazan dialect, the Tula dialect and the Smolensk dialect. The Moscow dialect and the Tver dialect form the Central Russian dialects. Then there are also the Northern Russian dialect with Belorussian influences, the Sloboda and Steppe dialects of Ukrainian and the Steppe dialect of Ukrainian with Russian influences.
In order to access the Russian speaking community of a given region, you need to use the translation services of an agency which is familiar with the dialects and their regional grouping. Each of these dialects is characterized by specific vocabulary, grammar usage, intonation and pronunciation. Some of the dialects use words that have long been discarded by the modern language speakers. This is true for any language. As time passes and culture evolves, new words are added and some of those which are no longer relevant are discarded. Russian translation calls for a complete understanding and familiarity with various dialects and their usage.
