Interpret is Scotland's new magazine of international literature: open to anyone, anywhere, in any language.

We showcase the best contemporary writers in Scotland alongside new poems, stories, and interviews from around the world. Authors featured in Interpret include winners of the International Booker Prize, the UK Gold Medal for Poetry, the US National Book Award, and the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award, Scotland's most prestigious prize for young poets.


Publication in multiple languages is key to that work: we always publish in the original and English translation. Although we receive no funding outside our subscribers, all authors published in Interpret are offered payment.

Our latest issue, Interpret 11, features Burhan Sönmez, President of PEN International, and Angela Rodel, winner of the 2023 International Booker Prize. On the theme of crisis, it presents new writing from Myanmar, Ukraine, Palestine, and Afghanistan.
