For companies wishing to enter the Russian market, Russian translation is crucial.
In general, Russian business partners will appreciate the effort of having your documents translated, but the better the quality of the translations, the more successful the interaction (and business venture) will be.

Here are two reasons why you should consider translating your documents into Russian:
With its total area of 3,796,742 sq mi, the U.S. is unquestionably a big country.
However, Russia brings the word “big” to a new level. With a total area of 6,601,670 sq mi, Russia is the largest country in the world (with China ranking 2nd and the U.S. 3rd), stretching over a vast expanse of eastern Europe and northern Asia and spanning 11 time zones.
Russia was once the major republic of the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.) but became an independent country after the Soviet Union ceased to exist in December 1991.
Russia’s climate is so extreme that its cold winters (personified as General Winter) have thwarted Napoleon’s and Hitler’s attempts to invade the country.
The climate may make the population’s life more difficult, but this is offset by generous land, a source of crops, and rich in oil, gas, and precious metals.
Russian is the world’s 7th most-spoken language by the number of native speakers and the 8th most-spoken language by the total number of speakers.
Apart from, of course, Russia, it is also an official language in Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Kyrgyzstan and is understood in many other countries, including Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia, Uzbekistan, and the Baltic countries.
Like other Slavic languages, Russian uses the Cyrillic alphabet, consisting of 33 letters.
However, due to technical restrictions in computing and (sometimes) the unavailability of Cyrillic keyboards abroad, Russian is often transliterated using the Latin alphabet.
As may be expected of a language with 150 million native speakers, Russian has several varieties and dialects (though not as many as one might think).
In Russia, most people speak a standard variety of Russian, which goes back to the Soviet Union’s centralized education system and communication. However, there are still a few interesting varieties (govory, in Russian) you should know about:
Russian is a rich, complex language, full of bizarre, evocative phrases that don’t have an exact equivalent in English but can give you an insight into this ancient culture.
Literal translation: There’s no truth in feet.
Actual meaning: This phrase is an expression of hospitality. You use it to encourage someone to sit down and make themselves comfortable.
Literal translation: Without a tsar in the head.
Actual meaning: Whoever doesn’t have “a tsar in the head” is stupid, brainless.
Literal translation: I will show you where crayfish spend the winter.
Actual meaning: Actually, a little background knowledge is necessary to understand this. If you like crayfish, you may know that they are especially tasty during the colder months of the year, from September to April, and that they hide in water holes. So, if you want to find them you need to spend a lot of time in the freezing water. In ancient times, Russian landlords would force their peasants to go and fish crayfish, sometimes as a punishment.
For this reason, the expression is considered a serious threat and is used when you want someone to do something they don’t want to do.
