Journal of the United Nations

The new electronic Journal of the United Nations is now available in the six official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish) throughout the year at Journal of the United Nations

As part of its continuous efforts to promote multilingualism and to better service intergovernmental meetings, DGACM has digitized and streamlined meeting-related information and created a multilingual website for this flagship publication.

Since 2 January 2018, the new Journal has been produced in the six official languages, in accordance with General Assembly resolutions 70/305 and 71/323 . The streamlined digital Journal offers many user-friendly features and allows delegates and staff to check all meetings and events, in their language of choice, through their electronic devices, including smart phones.

The underlying Journal Content Management System (JCMS), which contains several multilingual databases, including hundreds of pre-translated standard text templates and agenda items, is a platform shared by submitting departments and entities - across the Secretariat, Funds and Programmes – as well as the Journal Unit and translation services, to produce a six-language version of the Journal in a timely and cost-effective manner. All language versions are published simultaneously to allow various users to access the same information, in real time, in their preferred language, while ensuring the equal treatment of the six official languages of the United Nations.
