The Los Angeles Times announced Thursday that signed content licensing agreements with three foreign-language newspapers serving Asian American communities: the World Journal, the Korea Daily and Nguoi Viet Daily News.
A story on its website states, “Starting this month, each of the newspapers will be able to select, translate and publish stories from The Times, in print and digital editions, on a weekly basis. The Times will have the option to publish the translated versions of the stories for its readers.
“‘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 Los Angeles Times.
“‘Newspapers for immigrant communities, especially those published in native languages, hold a special place in American society,’ continued Do, ‘and each of them has a deep connection with its audience.
