This week Newsweek is launching NEWSWEEK BIL LOGHA AL-ARABIA, the first Arabic-language international newsweekly. For all of us at NEWSWEEK, this offers the opportunity to provide our fresh, nonpartisan, just-the-facts style of journalism to a new group of readers. Our award-winning team of correspondents and photographers will supply in-depth coverage of a broad range of issues, from politics to pop culture, from health trends to the latest technological breakthroughs.
The Arabic edition of NEWSWEEK is published in Kuwait by Dar Al-Watan Publishing Group, and distributed throughout the Middle East, North Africa and selected cities in Europe and the United States. Our international reporting is edited in New York, then translated into Arabic by translators and editors based in Washington and Kuwait.
NEWSWEEK BIL LOGHA AL-ARABIA is the fifth foreign-language edition for us. Our others are NEWSWEEK NIHON BAN in Japanese, NEWSWEEK HANKUK PAN in Korean, ITOGI in Russian and NEWSWEEK EN ESPANOL for Latin America. With a global circulation of 4.2 million and an audience of more than 22.5 million, Newsweek is a truly international publication. We are proud to welcome the newest member of our growing family.
