Conde Nast Publications

Decent Essays
Vogue was born in the United States in 1892 and was founded by Arthur Baldwin Turnure. In 1909, when Baldwin died, Conde Nast Publications, Inc. (created in 1908, based in New York City and which publishes other magazines such as Vanity Fair, Glamour, GQ, W, The New Yorker or Architectural Digest) purchased the famous magazine and Vogue joined Conde Nast Publications, Inc. Precisely, this was the first American publication that managed to captivate Europe given that it was first published in Britain in 1916 and in France in 1924. Conde Nast Publications, Inc. also has independent headquarters in the countries where it works. Among these countries are those languages on which this analysis and is based (Spanish, German and English). Thereupon, these are “local editions of an international publication” that are “published independently in different languages, always adapting the content of that publication to the interests of the local market instead of translating the original edition”, although sometimes there is a translation labour” (O’Hagan, 2002: 11). Specifically, this is an important aspect which will be examined and evaluated since the Spanish, German and English editions of this well-known magazine are often localized and not necessarily translated, as this author mentions, adapting the content of that publication to the context and milieu of the reader of the magazine.
