Russian has the 7th place among the most spoken languages in the world, and the 8th place among the most spoken native languages. Russia is among the most popular languages in the world. Therefore, the need for English to Russian and Russian to English translations increases from day to day.
Russian uses the adopted version of Cyrillic alphabet which was used until 1750 and it has 33 letters. Russian is among the 7 official languages of United Nations and it is very similar with Belarus and Ukrainian languages. The emphasis on words is especially important while learning Russian as they do not contain any standard rules, and this makes Russian a hard language to learn.
