About Polyglot

Passion for Translation and Serving People

Welcome to a little tour around Polyglot Translation Agency! You will learn how we operate and why most clients come back and trust us.

Caring about Your Comfort

The doors of Polyglot Translation Agency are opened on weekdays from 9 am to 7 pm. We know that many people work till 6 pm and hence stay opened until 7 pm to let you get to us after work. If you realize you will not be able to make it by that time please give us a call and we will wait. We also operate without a break to enable you to visit us during your lunch time. Moreover, we operate on holidays and weekend by prior arrangement because a client’s convenience is our top priority.

Following this principle, we always cater to your needs:

  • We do urgent translations of personal documents. If you have placed an order before 11 am we will make our best to translate and notarize the documents within the same day wherever possible.
  • It should be taken into account that some translations require a significant amount of effort. For comparison: a literary translation or a ship operation manual would take much more time than a bill of lading or a marriage certificate. Thus, if you need to have your documents translated by some specific time – the earlier you contact us the better.
  • We take orders and payments online since not everyone can find time in their busy schedule to visit a translation agency office.
  • We offer a full range of services related to document legalization: we translate, certify translations, get them notarized and apostilled. If necessary, we can request document copies at state authorities of Vladivostok or elsewhere in Russia as well as some foreign countries to save your time and efforts.
  • We can arrange courier delivery of translated documents to your address in Vladivostok, other Russian regions or abroad.
  • We are located in the downtown area of Vladivostok and a parking lot by the building is just another advantage! We offer 50% discount for the first hour of parking to our clients.

Why Our Clients Trust Us

Now we would like to explain why you can be confident in the top quality of our services. First, let us introduce our team.

Our translators have received specialized education but they do not remain complacent and are continuously enhancing their knowledge and skills: attending webinars, workshops, studying new translation tools and technologies.

At the same time each translator has some particular area of expertise and is constantly sharpening translation skills in that field – for instance, medical, legal or literary translation.

The company is owned and managed by professional translators who are well-versed in the business and know all ins and outs that may be unfamiliar to non-linguist managers.

But the key thing making Polyglot employees one team is our passion for translation and satisfaction from doing our job. We are enthusiasts who cannot imagine their lives without translation, who are committed to their job and ready to go the extra mile to find a seamless solution for every new challenge and introduce innovation.

Here is what Director of Polyglot Nadezhda Malashenkova says about her job and professional attitude: “I would like to quote Ray Bradbury: ‘It doesn't matter what you do so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime.

We are gardeners in our own domain; translation is our calling that brings satisfaction and joy and our vocation that we want to grow in. A job where we are striving for excellence every day!”
