Reading several newspapers in one's languages and being aware of what happens in countries where these languages are spoken is essential for an interpreter. However, interpreters and interpreting trainees tend sometimes to live their daily life in a hurry.
A website providing today's news in several languages at the same time and on the same topics would be the solution for those days when we just can't afford the time to surf the net.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
One way is to create your own multilingual page using a feedreader and the RSS feeds of your favourite news sites. Netvibes is excellent. You can choose which sites and papers to follow, organise them as you like and whenever you go to your Netvibes page it will be up-to-date with the latest news items. Attached is a screenshot of part of my own Netvibes page... You can create as many tabs as you like and each tab can comfortably contain 10 feeds without having to scroll down. (Each bullet in the example screenshot is a link to the full article.)
