Editorial Submissions

For more than 30 years, MultiLingual has been the primary source for in-depth news and information about the language industry.

We welcome the submission of clear, interesting, and non-promotional articles directed toward business users, software developers, localization managers, translators, and others interested in multilingual issues. To submit a story idea or an already-written article, please complete the form here.

When writing your article, please refer to the word-count guidelines below, as well as our editorial stylesheet.

Graphics and illustrations — including screen shots, charts, and photos — can enhance an article and help make technical points clearer. Please refer to our graphics guidelines.

Note about publication rights: MultiLingual Media acquires first world publication rights of the articles it accepts, including the right to publish in the magazine, on our website, and in other places and formats as appropriate. We do not accept reprints or previously published articles. We sometimes grant the author or another publication permission to use the published MultiLingual article elsewhere.

We publish the following types of editorial content in the magazine:


Perspectives are opinion pieces that express a point of view and range between 1,000 and 2,000 words.


Profiles consist of original photos and an in-depth interview of one featured person. Roundtable interviews include multiple interviewees discussing a topic. Profiles and interviews are at least 1,500 words. If you’re interested in being profiled, or know of someone who might be interested, please let us know.

General Articles

Between 1,500 and 3,500 words, general articles can be on any language-related topic. They should offer background facts, insights, and specific examples, as well as be easily understood by readers who may not have a working knowledge of the subject matter. We sometimes publish case studies, but always from client rather than vendor perspective.


Reviews of books or other products should range from 700 to 3,000 words. They should include graphics, provide basic information about the product, delineate its main or unique features, evaluate its usefulness, and compare it to other products if applicable or appropriate. The reviewer should not be associated with the company whose product is being reviewed and should not be compensated by the company for writing the review.
