The most obvious difference between English and Russian is that Russian uses a different alphabet - the Cyrillic alphabet, which uses 33 characters. The Cyrillic alphabet is named after Saint Cyril, a Byzantine scholar who lived in Bulgaria in the 9th century.
Linguistically, Russian is a very complex language. The Russian language has 3 genders (masculine, feminine and neuter), and six cases (nominative, genitive, dative, accusative, instrumental and prepositional). This means that there are different endings for adjectives and nouns depending on whether words are singular or plural, and on the case of the noun and the gender of the noun.
Rules for pluralisation in Russian are also different to English. In English, we just put an s on the end of a word to indicate "more than one". But in Russian, the way we indicate "more than one" depends on just how many items we are talking about and on the gender of the items. Let's look at an example - note how the endings of both the nouns (in this case book, or kniga in Russian) and the adjectives (in this case new, or novaya in Russian) change according to how many books we have:
|English||Russian (transliterated)||Russian (Cyrillic)|
This clearly shows why you should have your company's website, technical documentation and marketing materials translated into Russian by a skilled, qualified and experienced professional translator who has expert-level skills in writing in Russian.
