MULTI-LANGUAGE MARKETS

 Multi-Language Short Story Markets


For a list of valid international markets by country that accept submissions of sci-fi, fantasy or horror in English and translate them for publication, see Doug Smith's Foreign Markets List.

This page lists markets by language, and includes all the magazines, webzines, blogs etc. I've discovered, whether or not they accept submissions in English, including those that are now closed but where their website is still active, and some I've read about but can't find, and some that are literary magazines rather than specifically for speculative fiction.

All information is correct as far as I know, at the time of writing. Please get in touch and let me know if you have any information about any of these markets, or any others I haven't yet discovered.
