Russian is an important language primarily spoken in Russia, Belarus, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan. It is also spoken unofficially by millions of people in Ukraine, Moldova, Latvia, Turkmenistan, and Estonia.
As a result, Russian is the largest native language in Europe with 160 million speakers. This also makes it the 8th most spoken language in the world.
Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian legal system is generally considered to by a civil law system. However, the socialist influences of communism and the political influences post communism have made a strong imprint on Russia’s legal system. Combined with early Byzantine influences, this means that Russian law is in many ways very different from European civil codes.
Driven largely by the increase in International trade and investment in Russia, in the last decade we have seen a dramatic increase in the amount of Russian translation that we are asked to undertake.
Producing legal translations can be both complex and challenging. Therefore it is imperative to use professionally trained Russian linguists with the adequate knowledge and experience. Our extensive knowledge with legal translations also ensures that we only use industry experts and appropriately qualified copywriters to manage our translations.
Legal document translations can sometimes involve highly sensitive information but you do not need to worry about this being compromised. Our systems are protected by 128-bit encryption technology and our team of staff and linguists all sign confidentiality agreements as a matter of course.
If you require, we are willing to sign any non-disclosure agreements of your own for added peace of mind about legal document translations.
