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.) alt text

This is an amazing tool! I'm creating my own dashboard now. Thank you, Andrew! ;)

I have a problem, Andrew. Look, here I have the different RSS for LaRepubblica (http://www.repubblica.it/static/servizi/rss/index.html ). How can I get them onto my Netvibes dashboard? Thanks in advance!

Hi David Click "Add Content" in the top left-hand corner and then "add a feed" in the left-hand column. Copy and paste as many feeds as you like. Netvibes will create an icon for each feed that you then have to drag to your Dashboard. Andy

It worked! Thank you very much! I already have a nice 10-feed dashboard and I'm so happy! I'll save a lot of time and energy this year! On se voit à la rentrée ! ;)

These two sites are both excellent for that, I probably don't use them enough!

http://www.presseurop.eu/en

http://www.euronews.com/

Also, if you want the same thing but for radio:

http://www.euranet.eu/

Hope that helps!

+1 My favorite is Presseurop! They have news translated into 10 languages and translations are very good, al least the German and Spanish versions. I used to read it a lot (there is also an app for Android and iOS devices), comparing different language versions to learn new expressions and collocations.

Forget www.PressEurop.eu (it stopped existing)

Instead, for its replacement, GO TO: http://www.VoxEurop.eu/en

Presseurop was a multilingual Paris-based news portal that translated and published Europe-related news articles daily from over two hundred sources into ten European languages, including English. It was funded by the European Commission and was launched in 2009 by the French newspaper Courrier International, the Portuguese newspaper Courrier Internacional, the Polish newspaper Forum, and the Italian newspaper Internazionale.

Presseurop ceased updates on 20 December 2013 when its funding from the European Commission ended.

→ On 21 May 2014, VoxEurop.eu started, driven by volunteers, in an effort to replace Presseurop.

You can use http://hubii.com

You can filter results by categories and even by language. But the most interesting part is that you can read news around the world by searching a different location.
