Russian to English and English to Russian Translation Services
* There are 33 letters in the Cyrillic alphabet and one of the truly unique things about their written language is that words are spelled exactly as they are pronounced, so if you could learn the Cyrillic alphabet you could speak Russian in a day. Although you might not say anything sensible!
* There are plenty of rules about how a word is changed by other words in a sentence, and what the definition of a word is based on how it is spelled. But there are very few exceptions to these rules, so if you can learn them all – then translating from Russian to English for example, is relatively simple.
* There are six different declensions in Russian. These are Nominative, Accusative, Prepositional, Genitive, Dative, and Instrumental. This complicates a translation but it is because of these declensions that we are able to recognize the subject, verb and direct object in a sentence.

About the Russian language
* In the 6th Century AD, the Slav people migrated from old Poland, and by the 10th Century AD three Slavonic language groups had emerged – Western, Southern and Eastern. Easter Slavonic eventually changed and became the modern languages known as Ukrainian, Belorussian and Russian.
* There are approximately 200,000 words in the entire Russian language but this means that many words have more than one meaning which can be confusing for people trying to learn the language. This is more than double the 50,000 -100,000 words that were recorded in Russian dictionaries in the 19th Century.
* In the 9th Century AD, a missionary known as Constantine invented the Slavonic alphabet, which is now known as the Cyrillic alphabet (due to Constantine taking the monastic name Cyril on his deathbed). It was meticulously based on the Greek alphabet of the time with roughly 12 additional letters invented to represent unique Slavic sounds.
Interesting facts about Russian
* Because Russian language splits the colour blue into different categories (one meaning dark blue and the other light blue), native Russian speakers can distinguish between different shades of blue better than what native English speakers can.
* Russian is considered the international language of space and astronaut training includes staying in Moscow in order to learn the local language.
