Russian translation

The beauty of different cultures is the very fact that they are different.  Different to our own and others.  What’s intriguing is how cultures differ in beliefs, traditions, attitudes and etiquette.

Some differences we are happy to embrace, others we might not agree with or feel comfortable with and some are completely incomprehensible to us.

Stereotyping
It’s fair to say that we may have preconceived ideas of a country’s inhabitants and their culture without ever having visited their country or without ever having met anyone from that country for that matter.  That’s probably because we are greatly influenced by stereotyping especially when we don’t have personal experience to draw from.  This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as there is often an element of truth to the stereotype.

Russian translationIn the business world
If you are hoping to do business with another country, for example Russia, then it’s beneficial to have some understanding of their language and culture and be respectful of it.  It will most certainly aid your business relationship.

Insider knowledge
Did you know that to commence a business meeting with Russians you’ll need a firm handshake and be comfortable with maintaining eye contact?  If you don’t, you may be perceived as untrustworthy.  You’ll also be expected to be punctual even if your Russian colleagues are not.

Enigma Translation’s professional interpreters can help you overcome these cultural minefields in face-to-face meetings, networking scenarios and at corporate events.

The Russian language
According to Wikipedia there are 160 million native speakers of Russian in Russia, Belarus and the Ukraine making it the 8th most spoken language in the world by native speakers.  It also ranks as the 4th most spoken language in the World as defined by the total number of speakers.  And it’s one of the six official languages of the United Nations.

The need for a translator
Russian is the most widely used Slavic language so if you’re about to embark on business in Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Kyrgyzstan Estonia, the Ukraine, Latvia, Lithuania and Moldova you will find our Russian translation service invaluable.

When it comes to business communication it’s imperative to use a translator to ensure a smooth working relationship and understanding of documentation from emails, reports, contracts to marketing campaigns.

Using a professional translator from Enigma Translation will ensure your Russian translation needs are met fully.  Your specially selected translator will be fluent in Russian as it is their mother tongue; will have expert knowledge of the Russian culture and expertise in the subject matter to be translated.  Thus providing an accurate translation whilst retaining the original document’s meaning and context.

Medical Translation

Enigma Translation‘s Medical Translation service covers a vast area and is highly specialised.  Accuracy and efficiency is crucial as is expert knowledge of the medical sector, medical texts and hospital procedures in different countries.  Without stating the obvious, a poor or timely translation could mean the difference between life and death.

Let’s face it when we find ourselves in a medical situation as hard as we try to process the information we’re given at the time, we often come away questioning whether we’ve fully understood what was said.  What made sense in the doctor’s surgery, A&E or in the consultant’s room at the hospital is suddenly not so clear.

medical translationDon’t lose your head
So transport yourself to another country with a different language and understandably the situation can become a whole lot more scary and stressful.  However if you find yourself in this predicament, be it requiring medical or dental assistance whilst on holiday or as a new resident in a new country, Enigma Translation can help.

Not only do we take the mystery out of the language but also out of the situation.  Engaging the services of our professional translators to help with translating medical documentation can reduce the additional anxiety and stress of not fully understanding the situation or diagnosis.

On home ground
Perhaps on your return from another country you need to pass your medical documentation to your own doctor or insurance company.  Enigma Translation can help with the Medical Translation of patient information papers, consent forms, prescriptions, test results and discharge papers to name but a few.

Of course you may have opted for a medical procedure or alternative therapies to be carried out overseas or the family pet may have travelled with you on holiday and needed veterinary attention.  Many of these will generate medical paperwork that you may wish to have translated.

Make your business our business
On a business level perhaps you are providing a medical service abroad or dealing with medical documentation such as reports, journals, questionnaires, brochures or instructions for medical equipment that require translating.  Again our professional team of linguists can help.  We will assign a translator who is expert in the source language, target language and particular medical sector you are dealing with.

Also if you are running a restaurant or bar overseas and need to understand Health and Safety procedures in a foreign country and translate the documentation that goes with it, we can help with that too.

Medically speaking
In fact Enigma Translation has translation experience in all of the following medical areas: Oncology, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Paediatrics, Radiology, Psychiatry, Preventative medicine, Dentistry, Veterinary, Alternative therapies, Health and safety, Public health and Pharmaceuticals.

Whatever your Medical Translation needs, Enigma Translation is here to help.  Get in touch to find out more by calling +44 (01604) 750 799 or by email if you prefer.  You’ll also find details on our website and our free instant quote facility too.

And if for any reason there are legal implications with your medical situation abroad, we can also provide legal translation.

Financial translation

If you are dallying with the idea of moving your business or yourself to foreign lands, then add Financial translation services to your priority list. 

Even if you aren’t moving but you are doing business in another country you need to be able to converse or at least be sure of what your overseas client is recommending or intending to process.

With any large financial transaction on home ground, be it buying or selling property, setting up a business or making investments, you engage the services of an expert to manage the process, because when it comes to money you don’t want to lose a penny.

When things don’t add up
Of course overseas you’d do the same, but should you just assume the expert is fluent in your language?  After all that phone call went well, albeit after a shaky start and the emails sort of suggest you’re on the same page…but what if you’re not?  What if communication is a struggle in a ‘pigeon’ version of your native tongue?  How can you be sure you’re in safe hands?

You do the maths
Look at it this way, we’ve all laughed off unexpected dishes after failing to interpret a menu in a foreign restaurant successfully, but can any of us really afford to make the same mistake with larger sums of money or investments?  We’re guessing no.

Grade A maths and languages
By engaging the Financial translation services of Enigma translation, you’re taking steps to safeguard your assets abroad.  You’ll be in expert hands with a translator who understands the source language, speaks the target language and has a head for business – your business – be it personal or otherwise. 

Our linguists have experience in all aspects of business, personal finance and economics including banking, insurance, taxation, stock markets and property markets.  Thus enabling you to fully understand the process you are undertaking and the cultural differences in doing business overseas, eliminating costly shocks along the way.

Time sensitivity
The time difference between countries can be an advantage as well as a disadvantage, so if you need your Financial translation in a hurry, we’ll meet your deadline by turning it around in 24 hours if necessary. 

Financial terminology in whichever language you are dealing with will soon become your second language with the help of Enigma Translation.  Visit our website for a free instant quote, email us or give us a call on +44 (01604) 750 799.
