The EL PAÍS English Edition is brought to you by a team of three native English-speaking journalists and translators, working from the newspaper’s main newsroom in Madrid.
The English Edition offers a selection of news stories and features from the Spanish version of the publication, mostly focused on Spain, translated into English and with added context and explanation.
In 2021, we created a new section, titled USA, which draws from non-Spain related news stories and features – in particular covering the Americas – and aimed at an audience in the United States.
The English Edition began life as an eight-page print newspaper, and was distributed as a supplement inside the Herald Tribune, which was the international edition of the New York Times. As such, we have always used American spelling and conventions, and have continued to do so now that we are solely digital in order to maintain consistency with our archive and given our large readership in the US.
