Mashable rolls out French-language news site with help from France24

Mashable has announced that it is officially setting up shop in Paris with some help from French media company France24.

It marks the first time that Mashable will publish its news in a language other than English.

The French version of the site will include both global stories as well as “unique stories and multimedia created expressly for Mashable by France24 journalists based in Paris.”

According to Mashable, which has also rolled out editions in the UK, Australia, Singapore and India over the past two years, the French site will appeal to audiences who are "passionate about digital culture, entertainment nad technology, who care about the planet and the cosmos, who are committed to equality, diversity and social justice and who are never too busy to smile at cute animals or roll their eyes at Kanye.”

The digital publisher also said it feels “a special connection with France” following last year’s attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices and the city of Paris. Following the terrorist attacks on Paris last November, Mashable created a Twitter account called ‘En mémoire’ to honor the victims.
