Empowering linguistic diversity in newsrooms

SWI is a team of journalists producing content in ten languages for an international audience. This multilingual work environment is inspiring and enriching but also comes with its special challenges. Take a look behind the scenes in our video and hear directly from our staff members about how they work.

The employees of SWI come from many parts of the world. Around 15 languages are spoken across our departments. Our journalists' perspectives and cultural backgrounds are correspondingly diverse. This opens up new opportunities when researching and monitoring the important issues and debates around the world.

SWI benefits from this diversity not just in the production of content but also in making it accessible in other languages. Not all stories can simply be translated and often require careful adaptation and editing keeping the cultural codes of the different target audiences in mind. Most articles are not published in all ten languages. Instead, our journalists choose and adapt content that is relevant to their target audience and region.

--- is the international branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SBC). Its role is to report on Switzerland and to provide a Swiss perspective on international events.
