Expanding multilingual journalism

How might small newsrooms manage multilingual content? Start with demographic data of your audience to demonstrate need, said the experts in this ONA18 session on multilingual newsrooms. Then prioritize and focus on building relationships. Being multilingual is not about having every story available in each language, and there are stories that don’t work in multiple languages. Listen to the conversation for more insights and tips.
