Thing is: I've stumbled over the more or less official MCU timeline on that MCU wiki and they give an unfortunately unsourced year for the moment when Clint found Natasha and recruited her... That years says she was 14 which seems awfully early to me. I always suspected she worked for the KGB longer.
That site also states - again unsourced - she was only 10 or 11 when she joined the KGB, which seems complete guesswork to me. That wiki only references the The Avengers movie as source for both, and that's just plain wrong. No date for anything was given there. So I was wondering if there's any indicator on these S.H.I.E.L.D. files, so one can speculate what kind of stories we might see about this relationship coming up in AOU... The MCU timeline is ****ed up already and who knows how accurate these files still are since they are constantly shifting and changing months and years. But especially given that they contained Natasha's true birth year long before Cap2 came out, it's worth a shot...
And just for the record, I own all the blu rays and even the dvds :P. I'm just refusing to buy something that doesn't even come in my country code and that has mostly lame bonus material when I already own all the movies...
OK DP, I took a look at the file, and it has no mention of dates or ages on it. I'm not able to scan it right now, but here's the text of it ([REDACTED] indicates the text has been blacked out, as though with a black marker) Under spoiler tag for length:

SHIELD PERSONNEL FILE
Natasha Romanoff was recruited to the [CLASSIFIED], Russia's covert espionage facility, where she endured both an education and indoctrination into the world of spycraft. Natasha excelled in this strict training environment and soon became regarded as a master spy and one of the world's greatest assassins. Due to both her expertise and her growing threat to global security, Romanoff quickly appeared on SHIELD's radar, prompting Director Fury to send Agent Barton to eliminate her. Agent Barton disobeyed this order, recognizing her skill and recommending she be recruited for SHIELD. At the behest of Director Nick Fury, Romanoff later defected from Russia and joined the ranks of SHIELD
Agent Romanoff is a master in all the elements of espionage including hand-to-hand combat, interrogation, disguise, hacking encrypted computer systems, and infiltrating secure locations. As part of Strike Team Delta, Romanoff now has a functioning partnership with Clint Barton, who played a key role in her escape from the [CLASSIFIED] and subsequent defection
