Is a Russian Voice Over really necessary?

Russian is the official language of the Russian Federation and three more countries and is spoken by over 260 million people and is considered a native language to over 150 million speakers. It is the largest native language in Europe and vast industrial enterprises in Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and other members of CIS (Commonwealth of Independent states) have made it a must when it comes to localization and Russian voice over services.

Countries where Russian is an official language:

  • Russia
  • Kazakhstan
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Belarus

Russian as a secondary / important language

  • Armenia
  • Azerbaijan
  • Estonia
  • Georgia
  • Israel (due to large immigration)
  • Latvia
  • Lithuania
  • Moldova
  • Mongolia
  • Tajikistan
  • Turkmenistan
  • Ukraine
  • Uzbekistan

It is not an easy language to master and native speakers are a must. It also utilizes Cyrillic script so it’s next to impossible getting by with Google translate.

It is a language that needs a highly professional voice over service, did you know  that only 11% of the Russian population speaks English (and only half of that number has sufficient knowledge to read English written newspapers), so basically your website videos, industrial guides and education materials all need to be in Russian.

On top of all that the Russian government and people are adamant about preserving their national identity and language with year 2007 being declared the “Year of the Russian Language”.

So how the foreign companies cope with that?

It’s simple, they hire native talent, just the kind we provide for voice over services. And we take care of everything and we truly mean everything. We have a huge pool of Russian native speakers to choose from and we will take care of the recording, casting, cleaning, mastering, file splitting all you have to do is supply the text, actually we can do that as well, all we need are writing guidelines or source material and your russian voice over is well on it’s way.

If necessary we can also help you go beyond the voiceover, we can provide assistance and help with a full range of localization services guaranteed to make your business or product fully ready for the Russian speaking market.

Russian Language History

Russian is considered an East Slavic language closely related to Ukrainian, Rusyn and Belarusian it first appeared in its modern form in the first half of the nineteenth century very much thanks to Alexander Pushkin, a famous Russian poet who famously embraced the vocabulary and the grammar of the spoken language of the time that evolved into what we know as Russian today.

The 20th century was a turbulent time for Russia spent mostly as a part of the Soviet Union. In this time Russian became Lingua Franca of the vast Soviet state and also became a de facto second language in many countries of the Eastern block that had close economic ties with the Soviet Union and utilized Soviet made equipment. Especially economically it had become the language of engineers and the industry throughout eastern Europe and large parts of Asia.

Currently the Russian language is slowly declining in popularity outside the CIS but the large Russian diaspora is making it an interesting opportunity for businesses all over the world.

Use in international organizations

Currently Russian is an official language (along with others) of such organizations as United Nations, IAEA (international Atomic Energy Agency), WHO (World Health Organization), UNESCO, World Bank, OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe), IMF (International Monetary Fund), IOC(International Olympic Committee) just to name a few in effect there is no UN based organization founded after the second world war that does not use Russian as one of its official language.  This is in no small measure thanks to Soviet Union’s and later Russia’s seat in the UN security council and its position as one of the founding members of the UN.

Doing Business in Russia

Today Russia and the CIS are an important part of the global economy greatly contributing in the energy and industrial sectors but also increasing in agriculture and retail.

If you take a look at the list of companies doing business in the Russian Federation it’s pretty much a who’s who of global business, names such as General Electric, PepsiCo, Procter&Gamble, McDonald’s, General Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Cargill, Alcoa and many many more have a strong and established presence in the country usually with fully localized services and business practices accustomed to the local market.
