Foreign language secretarial offices


Small and medium sized businesses often find themselves in the situation that their business partners in the Russian language area do not or barely speak English / German. This occurs in particular far away from central areas and for Russian (Ukrainian, Belorussian, Kazahk, etc.) production companies concentrated in Eastern European markets.

A practice that has proven to be effective is having East West Communications support small and medium Swiss businesses with correspondence in foreign languages (emails, fax) and with targeted telephone conversations in Russian. This system allows the rapid exchange of important information or quick response to questions.

Our experience shows us that this service is of great value, as it thus strengthens the trust between the Swiss and the Eastern European firms. Russian and other Eastern European business partners with limited knowledge of foreign languages truly appreciate it when they can discuss certain technical questions or talk about other items thanks to the courtesy of their partner.

We offer foreign language correspondence with telephone services in Russian:
German - Russian
English - Russian

Mandates can be booked on an hourly basis.
