    Re: organization that publishes newspapers

    No. You'd have to say "newspapers and magazines."

    So I want the grand jury reach it's verdict. To say "edition" won't be understood and would be super wrong to use it for "newspapers and magazines"?

    Re: organization that publishes newspapers

    An "edition" is one particular instance of a paper or magazine. Like the Sunday paper here. They print an early edition you can buy on Saturday. Then they print the regular "final" edition on Sunday.

    If you have a friend who writes for newspapers and magazines, you have to say that.

    If I needed to do a bit of translation and say that there have been many reporters at a press conference, could I say "There have been been many reporters from various news agencies or news papers and magazines"?

    Re: organization that publishes newspapers

    A term that can be used for both a newspaper and a magazine?

    There is no specific word for that.

    The Axel Springer company is the largest publishing house in Europe. It has more than 230 newspapers and magazines...

    Axel Springer AG - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    If I knew Bulgarian, I would have said a big thank you to you!! You seem to be getting what I've been trying to say! As to my previous, do you think I could use a publishing house in the above mentioned context? Or I could stick to a news agency?

    As Dave said, there is no specific word for an organisation that publishes a newspaper or magazine.

    ostap, in the vast majority of the threads that you start, a native speaker gives you a sensible response within the first couple of posts. You insist on exploring every nook and cranny of possible ways of saying something different. Usually we end up with establishing that an early response was the best.

    You should know by now that literal translation rarely works. Are you really surprised?
