Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico news and newspapersMany visitors to Mazatlan -- or expatriate Mazatlan residents -- would like to learn more about current events in Mazatlan and other places in Mexico, but don't speak or read Spanish.

Fortunately, quality English language publishers -- and just touch of modern website machine translation technology -- make getting latest current news about Mazatlan in English as easy as the click of a mouse or the tap of a touch-screen!

The first four news websites listed are three English newspapers and online publications that publish daily stories about Mexico, Sinaloa and Mazatlan -- Mexico Star, The Guadalajara Reporter and The News -- along with the English version of the official website of the President of Mexico.

The three additional listings are the websites of large Sinaloa newspapers that have substantial daily coverage of breaking Mazatlan news -- El Debate, El Sol de Mazatlan and Noroeste.

Here is where the technology comes in.

Browser-based machine translation made easy!

(Technology Note: For those familiar with browser-based machine translation, just skip this and have fun reading El Debate, El Sol de Mazatlan and Noroeste!)

Machine translation has improved greatly in just the past couple of years, but machine translation is also still capable of producing remarkably inaccurate -- and often quite incomprehensible -- translations of news stories.

But for purposes of reading an online newspaper or other news source, machine translation -- however imperfect -- opens up an entire new universe of information for non-Spanish speakers: news and information about Mexico written by Mexicans from a Mexican perspective.

The simplest of news stories are prime examples, offering a look into Mexican life as it is lived today in a way that media filtered for English language readers very rarely can.

All modern browsers have some degree of translation capability.

If you want to begin using machine translation of news websites, the easiest way is to let your browser do the work.

Google's Chrome ( browser is as easy to use as any: Google translation is built in, and viewing a web page in various languages is essentially a one-click operation.

Chrome can be downloaded for Windows 8 / 7 / Vista / XP, for Mac OSX, and for Linux.

News website translation with Mozilla Firefox

Likewise, Mozilla's Firefox ( is renowned for its add-on's (extensions), and there are a very large number that provide translation, as well as other language-related functions.

Firefox can be downloaded for Windows 8 / 7 / Vista / XP, for Mac OSX as well as Android devices and both standard Linux distros as well as 64-bit Linux distributions.
