Mideastwire.com

An Internet-based service of translated news briefs covering key political, cultural, economic, and opinion pieces appearing in the Arab media.While there are now more than 500 Arabic and Persian news outlets reporting stories from and about the Middle East, there is currently no affordable means for English speakers to gain access to much of this content. Mideastwire.com aims to close this gap by offering daily translated briefs covering some of the key political, cultural, economic and opinion pieces appearing in the Arab media. Currently, the service covers news from all twenty-two Arab countries, Iran, and the Arab diaspora generally, with coverage that extends across the North Africa region as well as including the United Kingdom and other countries that host Pan-Arab media. The site includes a fully searchable archive containing thousands of briefs coded by subject categories (women, judicial, energy etc), specific news sources (Al Hayat, Al Jazeera, Al Quds Al Arabi etc), countries, general topics (opinion, business etc.), and keywords.
