News International’s thelondonpaper is to produce bilingual content this week to celebrate the many nationalities living in the capital.
Russian, Hindi, Urdu and Polish figures will write special features for the paper in their native tongue as well as in English highlighting the impact they have had on the city.
Siberia-born Sergei Kolushev, who established the Russian Economic Forum will be among the figures to contribute to thelondonpaper. He moved to London 15 years ago with $3,000 and the Forum now has an annual turnover of £20m.
Editor Stefano Hatfield said: ‘London’s success as a city comes from its multiculturalism, be it in business or culture. More than 300 languages are spoken on the streets of London and our readers are Londoners, from all over the world. This is a quality of London to be embraced.”
