Kontax, a multilingual press release website available in 67 languages, last month launched an initiative in favour of global freedom of the press by allowing journalists and their media organizations to publish and distribute free of charge their articles and press releases in the language of their choice though Kontax.
Kontax accounts will have access to the free publication of news articles in unlimited numbers; free distribution of articles to 300 media contacts; titles of items relayed automatically to major social media; multilingual alerts by keyword, city, country, category and language and alerts in standardized formats (full release, plain text, full contact details of the author).
Other benefits include dashboard to manage alerts; multilingual search and archiving systems; customizable distribution lists; access to 490,000 media contacts and direct access to the services of 75,000 professional translators.
Kontax believes that freedom of the press is the most important right, because it protects all the others. This initiative will help to guarantee that freedom, by making it accessible to every journalist.
