AP to launch Spanish-language stylebook
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The Associated Press is launching its first Spanish-language stylebook alongside the AP Stylebook that has served as a standard reference for English-language journalists since 1953.
Access to the Web-based “Manual de Estilo Online de la AP” will be available to subscribers of the AP’s Spanish news services starting Nov. 19. It will be opened to non-AP subscribers early next year. Prices range from $26 per year for one user to $210 for an annual 10-user license. The AP is offering introductory discounts of about one-third off regular prices.
The AP Stylebook is a widely used guide for grammar, punctuation and writing style. It also offers guidance on the principles of journalism. The stylebook includes an A-to-Z listing of words, names and locations with definitions and explanations of how to use them.
The online Spanish-language stylebook will be searchable and updated regularly. It includes chapters on sports terminology and arts and entertainment vocabulary and a pronunciation primer with audio files. It also features a guide on the usage of words that come from Spanish-language communities in the U.S., such as “tuitear” (to tweet) and “parquear” (to park a car).
