Russian Website Translation

Russian Website Translation

In order to effectively establish and maintain your online presence in Russia, you must have your Web site fully “globalized.” While the term “globalization” has many definitions outside of the translation services industry, inside the industry it refers to the basic process of creating a website solution that functions in any market in the world.

Not every translation company is equipped to perform Russian
website translation
, with its many complexities. Specifically, when searching for a company to translate your website into Russian, you should investigate their capabilities in the following areas:

1. Russian Website Translators:

Russian website translation projects should be executed by professional, native-speaking Web site translators who specialize in the specific professional and technical areas of your company. They should be experienced with issues related to Web site translation in particular, such as proper translation of text in links, graphics, and optimizing text for search engines.

2. Russian Website File Formats

Depending on their complexity, Russian website translation projects may involve many different file formats. Your Web site translation company should have the capability to translate text from such source files as HTML/XML, PHP, Java, JavaScripts, graphic files, ASP.NET files, or FLASH files. You may be required to supply these files for translation by email,  or by uploading to an FTP server, or by giving the translation company access to your website CMS.

3. Russian Website Terminology Management

Russian website translators should utilize translation memory tools such as Trados to translate the text strings that have been externalized from the various file formats, resulting in client-specific glossaries and terminology databases. The valuable data contained in the translation memories, which becomes the proprietary property of the client, ensures consistent translations and efficient updates to Russian websites.

Globalization Partners International has created a more extensive overview of globalizing websites for Russian consumers in a white paper,

, which is available via a free download in PDF format.
