Literary Translation Services

The weight of each word
When it comes to literature, you know that nothing has been written at random. Form, style and content of a literary work contain the author's thoughts and message, which often goes beyond what is printed on the paper. This is what makes literary translation a really tricky task: you have to know the author along with his or her cultural background and, at the same time, be able to re-create for the foreign reader a text which preserves the spirit, message and formal characteristics of the original work. It’s a matter of experience, knowledge and sensitivity.

A literal translation full of inappropriate direct translations and flat phrases, written by a beginner, improvising translator or, even worse, a computer-aided translation program, can turn even a Nobel Prize-winning piece into a sloppy, inconsistent, unreadable text.

This is why our literary translation services are carried out by professional Russian translators and each text undergoes a double review before delivery. Only in this way can we correctly reconstruct in the target language the settings, characters, atmospheres and emotions created by the author.

Make the right choice:
entrust us with your literary translations from or into Russian.


The opinion of our customers is really important to us.
Regarding the time, I have nothing to complain, you were very efficient in translating and the TNT was also efficient in delivering the envelope, that is more important to me.

Personally I am happy with your Russian translation services, first of all because you were available and you responded all sorts of questions I had, especially regarding the bank transfer.

So, in a few words I would say that, I am satisfied with the translation. Once again, thank you for your availability.
