Several times we made translations for personnel departments of different companies, including small businesses and large international companies. We have translated set of documents “Personnel department support on questions of labour law and HR records keeping”, several dozens of position descriptions, management audit documents. Most commonly translation on “Personnel” topic belongs within language pair Russian-English, but we also have made translations on HR-topic from Turkish, Chinese
and French languages.
“Own interests and the future shall be built on the basis of the company’s business
ups-and-downs”- is written in the first paragraph of the Rules for the company’s employees, translated from Chinese to Russian in the Flarus Translation Company
. Our translator from Chinese has made maximum efforts to convey all the shades of the document’s style: from matter-of-fact official style to appearing colloquial phrases, intended, probably, to inform personnel on high-scale indignation of the authority – (“it is prohibited to leave and be out of a workplace without permission, talk without interruption (verbatim translation from Chinese – “chat”), slack off”).
As written in text of the Rules translated from Chinese, for labor achievements the company will present not only material but mental rewards. It is not specified in the Compliance code
what mental rewards mean.
A penalty shall be charged for being late to work
more than 3 times a month: a half day salary
is usually collected for one lateness.
As in translation from Chinese to Russian Employment policies and procedures in the area of retail trade are concerned, major part of the text is dedicated to посвящена standards of conduct for salesmen in the store. It is interesting that a separate paragraph is dedicated to a place where a salesman
shall stand when greeting a buyer: “You should answer on customer’s questions standing before shop counter in order to accord a warm welcome”.
