Spring 2008 — Alba Longa was founded.
The brand’s major focus areas: providing quality services in the way of technical translation, high-level service for legal persons within the city and across the country, emulating the best Western management standards in the way of providing intellectual services, learning and adopting new technology.
We opened an office in the center of Saint Petersburg, on Zakharievskaya Street, and registered the domain name alba-longa.ru on the Internet and our company seal in the local tax agency. Sole proprietorship was chosen to be our initial legal form of operation. Despite the country being hit by the financial crisis, the company managed to sign agreements with ZAO Rosinzhiniring and a number of other Saint Petersburg’s large companies.
All projects were personally supervised by the founder of the company, Fyodor Vyacheslavovich Kondratovich.
Spring 2010 — the company office moved to the North end of the city, to Ispytateli Avenue, and settled down in the Miller business center, where it operates to this day.

Throughout 2011, intensive work had been carried out in the way of promoting the Alba Longa brand and building the company’s internal resources. The company hired its first full-time employees.
Spring-summer 2012 — OOO Alba Longa was registered. The company extensively developed its technical translation line of business. It signed agreements with such large companies as Pella (shipbuilding), FLSmidth (gold mining), Schindler, Uralkran, Thyssen Group (machinery manufacturing). The use of the MemoQ computer-assisted translation (CAT) software program was adopted.
Fall 2012 — the company received certification to the international ISO 9001:2011 Quality Management Systems standard.
The company’s managing director, Fyodor Vyacheslavovich Kondratovich, joined the Union of Translators of Russia.
