This is a thread for news sites, with a focus on ones that have the same articles in multiple languages or are for less-widely-spoken languages. For other free resources, see the list of resources list.

Contributions are welcome. Better formatting coming eventually, when the content starts to suggest a structure.

Project Syndicate(AniaR, delectric)(English, German, Spanish, Russian, French, Arabic, Chinese)
A news site, with translations of articles into several languages.

Nnavigable in Estonian only. This is an online collection of Estonian newspapers. Newspapers are viewable as scanned images. To see a list of all available newspapers, click on "väljaannete nimekiri" at the top of the main page. You can then pick from selected back issues of many Estonian newspapers for perusal or printing)

relations between the west and the Arab world. The good (better?) news is that it looks

parallel texts.
Enjoy.
