As a Pole who's trying to show up an English speaking readers some valid points in Polish newspapers about an important Polish and Polish related issues from our perspective I found difficult to point out Polish newspapers written in English.

Could sb have any to cite for me?
only one I found is Gazeta Wyborcza: wyborcza.pl

shame we have no such thing in another The Times type newspaper Rzeczpospolita: rp.pl

Newspapers in Germany are World's masters in lieing and shortening informations, for example the polls: If You have a look at the results of polls about political sympathies for different parties and accumulate the single results, You always get a number near by 100% - as if all people in Germany would think any party would be right for them. The truth is, that more than 50% of the Germans think that the parties are doing all the same, are doing the job of the richest ones.

What's about Polish Newspapers? Do You think they are really serious?

Looks like a Bankers' press. That's what the people need more than any other thing.

I think the problem as well is language. The Poles write a text in English from a Polish source and then an English corrector makes it sound more genuine but the Poles are crafty because they will not show the English Corrector the original text. That is why there are so many lies. It is easy for an Englishman to correct and improve a text but he should be allowed to translate from the original not a Poles version of the truth!

This is not true, as I and most proofreaders that I know of are provided with the source text for cross-referencing. We also keep direct contact with the translator and discuss any problems on skype or other internet communicators.

I am not saying it doesn't happen, but it's rare today in a competitive translations market to have documents translated just as the translators wants; after all there are many Polish people who can speak English now and will always pick-up on a bad translation.

I might recommend "Spotlight" to those Poles and others interested in improving their English. The good thing about this journal (published in Germany, I believe) is that ONLY NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS are allowed to write for it!! -:)-:) This in comparison with many namless magazines with similar goals in mind, but not using university-educated Brits, Canadians or Americans.

The advantage here is, of course, mistakes in English made by e.g. German native-speaker contributors, won't become reinforced in the learner's brain, like some computer virus that'll never come out.

I highly recommend it, as did many of my former German-speaking students, especially of advanced English.

using university-educated Brits

There are many uneducated educated Brits who have been to university. Like the new A levels everybody passes and there used to be the old adage 'educated idiots'. Education at university is no guarantee in itself that an English native speaker has a good knowledge of anything. I always remember when at university myself and I met a man studying German. Later I met him in London and we were waiting for an underground train and in conversation, I can not remember now even what we were talking about but he built a sentence including...'that is even worser than what...'even as he said it, it so stuck out and I simply cringed!

True, yet at least some type of yardstick is needed to insure an overarching standard, otherwise, why study/teach anything?--)
