Watching America

Watching America is a site with a simple mission: presenting translations of foreign news sources into English.

Translation turnaround time is very fast; the front page offers dozens of articles from around the globe, none older than late June and some of them from late this week. Some of the translations are done "automatically" (that is to say, by software) and are pretty clumsy, but others are translated and edited by actual human beings.

Recommended, as an additional perspective on the world.
