Translations of our collaborative reports on pangolins

Global, Indonesia, Myanmar
By Patrick Boehler, on February 5, 2020

We released our global investigative report to the public domain under the Creative Commons’ BY-NC-ND license, making translating and republishing the report simple and free.

This has led to some great translations that helped us spread the reach of our reporting.

In Myanmar, our colleagues at Myanmar Now translated our investigation into Burmese. But they didn’t stop there. They shared the report with other media outlets. Kumudra News and Mizzima Burmese published online. The Voice Daily and 7Day Daily published in print. (You can read it in English here.)

In Indonesia, our colleagues at Tempo Magazine, who uncovered ties between the local drug trade and the trafficking of pangolins, published our global report in Bahasa Indonesia. Read it here and please share it with friends and colleagues in Indonesia.

In Belgium, MO* Magazine kindly translated and published our report into Flemish. You can read it here. Please share it with anyone who might be interested.

If you’re interested in republishing our global report and you’re a non-profit, go ahead. If you have questions, get in touch by emailing us at contact (at)
