Russian subtitles for Nokia ‘Perfect 10’ promo

Nokia produced the ‘Perfect 10’ video to promote the release of Windows 10 to their staff. They needed to communicate the message to their global workforce as quickly as possible, and they opted to have the video subtitled in 14 languages.

The video uses a mix of animated captions and a direct message from the Corporate Vice President – Chris Weber. This made it a challenging project for our Subtitling engineers, who had to move the subtitles to different positions on the screen, to suit the content being shown. Nokia’s translation agency were delighted with our subtitling services, and we’ve snow produced more projects for them in over 20 languages.

A short history of the Russian language

English to Russian subtitling service

Russian is an East Slavic language like Ukrainian and Belarusian. It is an official language in Russia, Belarus and Kyrgyzstan. You will hear it spoken in the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Latvia and Estonia. It is spoken by about 250 million people.

Migrant communities also exist in the USA, Bulgaria, Israel, Canada, Germany and Finland, amongst other places. Russian is also a second language for many people who live in former Soviet Republics; such as Estonia, Finland and Latvia.

Russian writing dates back to the 10th century and the language used at that time was called Old Church Slavonic. Standard Russian began to emerge during the rule of Peter the Great, in the 18th century. It was during this time and into the 19th century that the language was standardised. Standard Russian is written and spoken throughout the country, but there are some regional dialects. In the northern section there are 5 dialects, there are two in the central section, which includes Moscow. Then, there are four in the southern section and three others with Ukrainian and Belarusian influences.

The Russians are known for producing great literary works from authors such as Tolstoy, Dostoyevski, Solzhenitsyn and Pushkin.
