Travelling to Russia can be a wonderful experience, whether you’re coming to Russia as part of your job or whether you’re taking a holiday. However, if you’re traveling to Russia for business or pleasure, the Russian language can often prove to be a barrier when finding accommodation, ordering food or understanding business meetings. In many such situations engaging a Russian interpreter can be helpful.
The Russian language is the 8th most spoken language in the world with about 200 million speakers. Most of the Russian population barely speak other common languages. So in case you want to have meaningful communication when visiting Russia, you will probably need a Russian interpreter. You cannot always rely on your Russian business partners that speak your native language, and even if you have a rudimentary understanding of the Russian language, the chances are that this doesn’t extend to the complex vocabulary necessary to discuss business deals or industry-specific topics.
Russian travel interpreters (also called guide or escort interpreters) accompany either foreign visitors to Russia or another Russian-speaking country or Russian-speaking visitors abroad. Many Russian interpreters and translators work within the travel industry in Moscow, St. Petersburg or some other city. They facilitate communication during business and/or tourist interactions, therefore interpreting can be professional or informal in nature. Most travel interpreting is consecutive. Whether you’re coming to Russia for business or for pleasure, our skilled team is here to offer you all the interpreter services you might need.
