Nora Favorov

Translations Editor, Russian Life

Nora Seligman Favorov has been struggling for decades to figure out the best way to express Russian thought in literate and natural English, a game she considers more entertaining than any crossword puzzle. Most of her translation work these days – including her regular task of translating Russian Life magazine’s Calendar feature – centers around her favorite subject, Russian history. She is associate editor of SlavFile, a newsletter for Slavic translators and interpreters.
