Step #1 Submit your request for Russian handwriting translation

First, you submit your request 24/7 via our online form. It is necessary to attach your handwritten document so that we can give you our precise price. We handle orders 7 am-7 pm GMT, so we will get back to you within our working hours.

You can submit your handwritten text in whatever format.  Just scan your text and send us the scanned copy. Alternatively, simply take a high-resolution picture of your Russian script and submit it in any format. It is vital that the copy displays the original text with great clarity, essential for Russian handwriting recognition and, consequently, translation accuracy.

Please specify your requirements and the deadline in the comments and attach the document.


Step #2 Get your free quotation

We cannot quote the exact price, given the variety of nuances. Firstly, would you like to get your Russian handwritten text translated only into English or transcribed in Russian as well? Secondly, the handwriting style really matters. One text can be perfect. Another one can be difficult to read or even unreadable – a scrawl. We therefore need to look at the whole document. Thirdly, what is the deadline? And finally, how large is your document?

We normally charge  £0.08/$0.10 per word of a source text in Russian. Please note this price is valid for clear and readable copies. The worse the quality, the higher the tariff. Please find out more about our translation rates.

A 500-word document will be translated within 1 business day after you make a partial prepayment. That is true for the cursive which reads well.

After looking through the document and considering your requirements we will let you know the final cost and the turnaround time.

Step #3 Make a prepayment for the project

Once we have discussed all the details, we issue an invoice for a deposit equal to 50% of the total project price. The invoices are in major world currencies and you can make the payment online. After the funds reach our end we will start working on your translation project.

Step #4 Russian handwriting recognition

In case you also need to convert your Russian handwriting to text in an editable format, we will type its Russian copy as well.

To start with, Russian handwriting is not an easy thing to decipher, especially for a non-native speaker – we all have different handwriting styles. Although all modern Russian people are taught to write properly at schools, you can meet like dozens or hundreds of different handwriting styles in Russian.

As you can see, deciphering Russian cursive can be tricky even for a native speaker. For this reason, we hire only native Russian linguists with university degrees. In addition, our experts are not only experienced in dealing with handwritten Russian texts but are also proficient in translating from Russian into English and vice versa. So you can be sure we will do our best to convert your Russian handwriting to text.

Furthermore, if the text was written with ink the words or letters may have become blurred over the years. To distinguish every single letter and word we have to see the whole text and, in addition, consider the context. Sometimes research is needed to check out, for example, some personal or geographical names, or even some historical data.
