This article examines the development of Internet websites by traditional news organizations operating in European minority languages.

Media and journalists of 10 European minority languages (Basque, Catalan, Galician, Corsican, Breton, Frisian, Irish, Welsh, Scottish-Gaelic, and Sámi) were studied using field methods, interviews, and a fairly representative survey of journalists in press, radio, and TV.
