Alongside my journalistic work, I also frequently translate articles from Russian to English for Riddle, a website on Russian politics and current affairs.
Please get in touch if you’d like to commission me for Russian to English translation jobs.
I regularly translated longform reportage, essays, and commentary from Russian to English for openDemocracy and other websites, and Russian-language investigations for OCCRP. A selection of those translations, among others, can be found below:
