WORLDMEETS.US is a nonprofit journalism project that gathers and translates the world's news and views about the U.S. The driving force behind the project is a belief that Americans often know very little about how U.S. policies, politics and actions affect other nations. Given the level of cooperation that the next few decades will require, direct contact and relationship-building between Americans and people around the world is essential. We have translated thousands of articles from the most prominent names in modern journalism, which have never before been available in English - from Le Figaro of Paris to Kitabat in Baghdad, from El Universal in Caracas to the Global Times of Beijing. WORLDMEETS.US is a project to connect Americans with the rest of the world, and inform them about global perceptions of their nation. Our longterm goals include creating an online community that will nurture citizen diplomacy across the globe. Our 70 worldwide volunteers include journalists who have worked for Reuters, Dow Jones, The Associated Press, and the International Herald Tribune. Our volunteers translate and edit articles from multiple languages, including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Swedish, Spanish, Hungarian and Farsi. Our volunteers live in Iran, Iraq, China, Hong Kong, Great Britain, Switzerland, Malaysia, Morocco, Iran, France, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, the United States and Canada. WorldMeets.US is a non-partisan, volunteer-based, not-for-profit organization that operates solely in the public's interest. The opinions expressed in articles posted by WorldMeets.US are not necessarily those of WorldMeets.US, its sponsors or its volunteers. Please view our work. Read more about us. Read our mission.
