  • Location
    When you look for a Russian translation agency in the UK or beyond the first thing you have to take into consideration is the location of an agency. The location may tell you a lot even before further inquiry.
    The country or city where an agency is supposed to be based is the first border that you have to cross.
    But the location can also be a beneficial factor in case an agency in question is based in the country of your target language. It may be good in terms of having native language speakers for translation and for saving money as it is typical that local agencies may charge less in comparison with international companies.
  • Size
    Size is another factor that determines few other things, like experience, availability, and management. The size may also affect the price. If you wonder why the size of a translation company may affect the price you have to imagine what would be the large translation company look like. You have to understand that in order to manage the big company it should have a management team that has so many managers as to work with every language. In this case the company that works with just two languages is much more flexible and light-weight that may reduce a lot of costs for both the company itself and for you as a customer.
  • Publicity
    Before you even contact an agency you have to make sure the company you apply exists. The company that introduces itself as an international translation company should have respective publicity in the world and in the mass media.
    Of course, if the company is small and works only with freelance translators (not in-house as in case with large companies) it may not be very popular. However, the presence in social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, may add a lot to the recognizability of their agency in the global or local market.
  • Availability
    The Russian translation company in the UK or in any other country should be available for any size of your project. It should be noted that even small companies may have a team consisting of hundreds of available translators. If the company is small it does not mean that they do not have the required capacity or human resources to cope with your project and manage it. Even small companies have a solid team of sufficient number of native speaking translators ready to take any assignment whatever size and volume.
    The lack of availability of the required translators speaks about poor management of the company that may affect the quality of translation.
  • Communication
    Any translation agency, whether it is Russian or UK agency, should be absolutely communicative because translation is always communication. It is preferable to contact an agency with 24/7 and round the clock availability. But it is true that the full day and night availability is only possible with huge companies which have their affiliates or branch offices on different continents, like Americas, Europe and Asia, that makes them available throughout the week and at any time. With smaller or small companies it is not always so. They can only be available within their time frame during the light day when they are awake and ready to reply to your emails or to answer your calls.
  • Price
    Price is the last factor that may determine if an agency is good and professional. It is because the price depends on many factors listed above. The bigger company the more fees and charged and VAT pays the company. Of course it can be registered in a jurisdiction that allows to optimize the taxes and thus reduce the payment burden on the company and the customer. The final price quote may depend on what contractor or translator is hired. Sometimes companies use a non-native translator speaking fluently in the language you need to translate your text into. He may also be good in translation of your document but not as perfect as a native speaker.

Translator Has the Last Word
But the quality of the final translation product depends solely on the translator and/or proofreader, not the agency itself, as such. So, it is more important for you to look at how the company interacts and communicates with translators, and if translators are happy with the company. If the translators are OK with the agency in question, then you can be 100% sure the translators will deliver the best quality possible.

Responsiveness is Vital
Another aspect that helps you determine the professional qualification of the agency is by how quick and promptly the agency responds to your request. We made a research and found that only 1 out of 5 aforementioned agencies responded within the same… day. All the rest of the companies either just did not respond or responded within 2 or more days. Of course, such a delay in reply can be devastating for urgent tasks.
