·Free access to Inttranews Archives for linguists: Inttranews, the leading wire service for the global language industry, now provides free access to its Archives for linguists. Rouen, France (for immediate release): Since the launch in October 2004 of Inttranews, the leading wire service for the global language industry, excerpts from more than 7,500 articles have been published on events and issues of interest or concern to linguists worldwide. These archives are an extremely valuable source of information for linguists, journalists, students and academic staff, as a research tool for articles, study papers or theses, as background data for marketing, for media and market surveys, and for business involving the language industry in general. Until today, however, to make downloading as fast as possible, only the last 10 days of articles were displayed on the site. Now with Inttranews Archives, readers have access free of charge to all the articles on-line, with searches by keyword. On average, 30 new articles are published each working day in the two language versions currently available (English and French). The articles are different in, and specific to each language version. To use Inttranews Archives, please visit and click on the 'Archives' link in the left-hand menu.
