Yeah, I was looking those over the other day. There's rather a lot of them, and the quality is a bit erratic, but some of them would certainly be workable.
I might be able/willing to bring some over, but (due to the whole me not speaking Russian thing), the translations would be more writing the core ideas and structure in English rather than an actual translation. If this isn't what we'd want, that's fine.
Staff have spoken briefly with gene about this. It's kinda on our list of stuff to finish at some point, but it's snaggy…
The chief issue we've had is getting in touch with the original russian authors. If it can be done, we'd like to have some of our guys edit the translations for clarity, but let the original creators do the actual posting so that they get credit.
The second issue is the question of quality anaxagoras mentioned. Many members of the russian site are still new to writing, or at least writing in the SCP format, and what counts as quality there and what makes it here don't necessarily add up. We've not yet decided on who will be in charge of reviewing the russian works to see which one makes the cut. It wouldn't do anyone any good to bring over a bunch of articles only to have them tank.
Basically, it's kind of a sloppy mess of coordination, but it's in the works.
I'm actually working on one to get it into English. It was roughly translated, but I'm having trouble keeping it original and still making it flow properly. It's on my list, though….

Here's my attempt at translating one of my favorites. I wonder if it should be announced here or somewhere else.
Definitely needs some touchup, but still better than Google Translate.
Glad to see that here know about the existence of the Russian branch. I think we should start a closer cooperation. Is there anyone among you who know Russian language?
In any case, I'm open for communication.
Which ones are needed to be translated? Perhaps I could be of some help..
Translation from Russian to English or from English to Russian?
