“International Magazines,” Ensign, Jan. 1998, 79

International Magazines

In addition to the Ensign, New Era, and Friend magazines, the Church publishes an international magazine that is translated into numerous languages. Usually titled Liahona, the International Magazines feature articles from other Church magazines, original articles, and local Church news. Members living anywhere in the world may subscribe to any language edition through the Salt Lake Distribution Center (see page 1 of this issue for the address and phone number).

Depending on how many members are available to subscribe in each language, the various editions appear monthly, bimonthly, or quarterly. For languages in which available readership does not yet allow a magazine, monthly First Presidency and visiting teaching messages are translated. For subscribers of the bimonthly and quarterly magazines, First Presidency and visiting teaching messages are made available in the months when no magazine is published. As readership numbers increase, magazines can be started or increased in frequency.
