L.A. Times begins licensing news for translation in World Journal, Korea Daily, Nguoi Viet Daily News

The Los Angeles Times announced Wednesday it has begun licensing its news stories for translation in three Asian-language newspapers: The World Journal, the largest Chinese-language newspaper in the U.S.; the Korea Daily, the largest Korean-language newspaper in the U.S.; and the Nguoi Viet Daily News, the largest Vietnamese-language newspaper published outside of Vietnam, based in Orange County, California.

“We’re excited about working with these storied publications to make our reporting on a range of relevant topics more accessible to their readers,” said Anh B. Do, community engagement editor for the L.A. Times, in an announcement on its website.

“Newspapers for immigrant communities, especially those published in native languages, hold a special place in American society,” Do said in the announcement, “and each of them has a deep connection with its audience. Through this agreement, the publications will be able to publish L.A. Times stories on topics Asian Americans tell us they’re most interested in, including healthcare, higher education, economics, immigration and housing.”

Each of the three publications will be able to select, translate and publish stories from the L.A. Times on a weekly basis, and the Times will also have the option to publish the translated versions, the paper said.
