This video is available only in Russian.
How often do you smile or sigh when you see absurd Russian texts in foreign hotels and restaurants? Do these spoil your impression of the hotel you are staying at? Have you tried your hand at translating such texts yourselves? If you have, you will probably agree with us in that it is always a challenge, and even the simplest things can cause you lots of trouble when you try to render that in Russian. What do your clients expect from your translation? How do we make the text attractive, and the client happy?
Come join us as we try to find answers to some of the typical questions that translators have when working with copy related to the hospitality, tourism and travel.
