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 Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry, 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 for their work.

Our latest issue, Interpret 9, includes new writing from Eritrea, Belarus, and Ethiopia, with new translations of Yves Bonnefoy, France's most decorated post-war poet.
