This week sees the launch of Forum.eu, a bold initiative to bring Europeans together by translating selected articles into readers’ own national languages. The aim is to foster a greater understanding between Europeans of news in neighboring countries and generate an ‘open culture of discussion’.

The platform, headquartered in Berlin but with Editors based throughout Europe, is funded by subscription – for four euros a month, subscribers receive seven curated articles on Europe every day, all of which are chosen for their importance and topicality.

Publisher partners include El Mundo (ES), El Diario (ES), Frankfurter Allgemeine (DE), Diario de Noticias, ECO (both PT), Ethnos (GR), Rzeczpospolita (PL) with more publishers set to join.

Launch languages include English, German, French, Polish, Spanish and Greek, with the aim to eventually include all European national languages.

Subscribers can support Forum by paying more than the four euros subscription fee if they wish – any additional funds will be dedicated to language diversity. The platform, currently in Beta, will remain free through the summer of 2020.
