Unfortunately I can’t comment yet, because I’m not sure if something like French English News is quite what you’re looking for or if it is a little too simple. Therefore I’ll leave that coupled with another recommendation.
Slightly More Advanced French
A site like Slate France is not too bad. I assume you’re familiar with the original English version of Slate. You’ll have to put in a little bit of effort though. For example, you can perform a search for “traduit par.”
- A result I picked out at random is “Le dad bod expliqué par la science” written by Hanna Rosin.
- A subsequent search for some relevant keywords like “Hanna Rosin” and “dad bod” on “site:slate.com” yields the original article: “Dads Can Also Flaunt Their Post-Baby Bods, According to Science.”
The same trick also works on the Le Monde Diplomatique website which you mentioned yourself, except there the relevant keywords are “translated by.” I note that these two articles are the same, for example, by searching for the name of the author (Florence Beaugé), and a relevant term from the article that’s unlikely to be translated (Tiffany Runion).
- “Unequal state of the union.” http://mondediplo.com/2016/11/12uswomen
- “Toutes les Américaines ne s’appellent pas Hillary Clinton.” https://www.monde-diplomatique.fr/2016/11/BEAUGE/56756
It’s too bad that they don’t make it any easier on you by linking to the original from which it is translated or even mentioning the original title.
I advise you to have a look at the website of “Courrier international”: it offers a selection of articles from various newspapers and magazines around the world, all translated in French (and the quality of the translations is quite high, often with some notes on cultural items, etc). You can look up by source, and select English-speaking sources from here : http://www.courrierinternational.com/notule-source. The online articles also have a link to the original one if it is available. Take for instance this article: http://www.courrierinternational.com/article/2014/04/21/le-capitalisme-se-mord-la-queue. You will find a link named “lire l’article original” at the end. But remember, “Courrier international” is targeted at French native speakers, so I imagine it may sometimes be as difficult as reading “Le Monde”. However, I am sure you will find articles that will fit your interests, it is very varied. Bon courage !
