Abstract: Most large organizations have dedicated departments that monitor the media to keep up-to-date with relevant developments and to keep an eye on how they are represented in the news. Part of this media monitoring work can be automated. In the European Union with its 23 official languages, it is particularly important to cover media reports in many languages, to capture the complementary news content found across the different languages, and to be able to access this multilingual information across languages. We present here the four publicly accessible systems of the Europe Media Monitor (EMM) family of applications (see http://press.jrc.it/overview.html), which cover between 19 and 53 languages. We give an overview of their functionality and discuss some of the implications of the fact that they cover quite so many languages. We discuss design issues necessary to be able to achieve this high multilinguality, and the benefits there are to monitoring so many languages.
