Target language Russian – language variants
The Russian language and culture are strongly represented in Switzerland, and economic relations between Switzerland and Russia are significant. In Russia, the largest country in the world, there are several regional varieties of the Russian language, each with its own history, culture and linguistic tradition. The main regional varieties are:
- Moscow Russian: The standard variety spoken in Moscow, the capital of Russia. It is considered the ‘prestige’ variety and is used in official and formal situations.
- Northern Russian: Spoken in the northern regions of Russia, including St Petersburg, it has a soft pronunciation and distinct intonation patterns.
- Southern Russian: Spoken in the southern regions, including the Caucasus and the Black Sea coast. It is known for its rich vocabulary and distinctive dialects such as Kuban and Terek Russian.
- Siberian Russian: Spoken in the vast Siberian region with influences from indigenous languages and cultures, it has a unique vocabulary and grammar..
- Far Eastern Russian: Spoken in the Far Eastern regions, including Kamchatka and Sakhalin. It has a distinctive pronunciation and intonation.
Each regional variety of Russian has its own characteristics, which can occasionally lead to communication difficulties between speakers of different varieties. However, standard Moscow Russian is generally understood by all speakers and is used as a written language for formal occasions.
Our translation agency takes on your translation jobs into Russian according to your stylistic and terminological specifications, taking into account the spelling and idiosyncrasies of each language variant.
