Ukrainian Translations from Professional Ukrainian Translators
Much smaller than its neighbor to the east, Russia, Ukraine is often overlooked. But Ukraine is itself a powerful country, with its population of more than 40 million and its growing economy. While Ukraine’s economy is not as developed as those of its counterparts in Western Europe, the country is on its way up, marking an ideal opportunity for foreign businesses to establish a presence in Ukraine. At the same time as foreign companies move into Ukraine, native Ukrainian businesses are expanding outward, particularly those in the tech sector.
The primary language in Ukraine is, of course, Ukrainian, with Russian spoken natively by a minority. While the languages may look similar to the uninitiated, they exhibit a number of differences and are generally not mutually intelligible. So, if you want to convey a message to the Ukrainian people, hiring professional Ukrainian translators is the best way to do it. Here at ProofreadingServices.com, with our professional Ukrainian translation team, we can help.

What Translators Face When Translating Ukrainian
As an East Slavic language, Ukrainian does bear a number of similarities to Russian. It is a highly inflectional language, making use of three genders, two numbers, and seven cases. By default, Ukrainian is a subject-verb-object language—like all Slavic languages—but it has relatively free word order thanks to its high degree of inflection, allowing speakers to construct other word orders to create different nuances.
If Ukrainian’s nouns, which decline for gender, number, and case, weren’t complicated enough, verbs also undergo extensive inflection. With Ukrainian verbs conjugating for four tenses, two voices, three persons, and two numbers, a huge number of inflectional possibilities exist for each verb. In Ukrainian, verbs don’t inflect for aspect because they follow the Slavic-wide practice of using separate verbs for the perfective and imperfective aspects. These verb pairs are usually identifiable, distinguished by a prefix or sometimes a root change. In fact, a single root verb can have any number of derived sibling verbs thanks to the large inventory of verbal prefixes in Ukrainian. This allows Ukrainian speakers to zero in on the manner of a given action, expressing exactly how it was completed.
With so much complexity in Ukrainian, it’s no wonder people struggle to learn it. Our Ukrainian translators are trained professionals in the language, so you don’t have to worry—we can always craft high-quality, reliable Ukrainian translations.
