Using a Bilingual Manual in Russian Businesses

Computer software designed specifically for business can aid in a variety of ways. However, to achieve maximum benefits, one has to be familiar with the computer and be able to understand the vocabulary that is used in wordy manuals. Unfortunately, the computer software section does not offer a variety of software programs with manuals available in different languages. Rochester is an example of a city where there are many small businesses whose owners are not primary English speaking. A bilingual manual that included directions and information in English and a translated Russian text seemed imperative. This project researched to what extent a bilingual manual would increase business productivity.
