Alex, the Russian speaking part of livejournal or the
russian interested? Is there a community or specific
interest? (English speaking would be wonderful.)

list or in Slovo makes no difference - both options count as "electronic
publication", and are therefore subject to copyright laws.
I'm not sure what the law is in Russia, but here in .cz (based afaik on
WTO rules) copyright to the translation lies with the translator, not
the author - which, however, does not mean that permission should not be
sought before distributing such a translation.
However, if you were to approach the author, I'm sure he'd be absolutely
delighted to receive a free translation of the publication! (It would be
FAR less expensive for him to polish up even a poor/amateur translation
than to commission a new translation from scratch - bear in mind that
most academic papers will normally need extra grant funding to be
published in foreign languages - and even halfway decent translation
If you retain the copyright, you can then publish it in Slovo or
anywhere else, as long as the source is cited - and you could always
agree as part of the deal to allow him to publish the translation or
parts thereof wherever else he likes.
I would have thought that a polite letter or e-mail (in Russian)
explaining why the subject is of interest and making the offer would be
very unlikely to be turned down; it does, after all, appeal directly to
the author's vanity!

Some FIDO conferences have got their twins in LJ: SU.HISTORY, RU.FANTASY, etc. The link I gave you I received from a Russian-speaking cooking community kitchen_nax (http://www.livejournal.com/userinfo.bml?user=kitchen_nax ), when looking for a reference to monastery household books. They also gave me some more community names I would like to dig into, for more info.

The English-speaking LJ lives separately, I simply don't know what goes on there.
