The Francophone Service is also available and is anchored in the GL Francophone office. The service produces an average of eight articles every month different from those produced on the English Service. The Francophone Service caters for all French readers and receives contributions from DRC, Madagascar and Mauritius.

Launched in 2011, the Portuguese Service is anchored in the GL Lusophone office. It aims to produce news on various issues including gender and climate change, an issue that affects Mozambique most. Journalists from Mozambique have been recipients of the GL gender and climate change reporting and the gender and economic reporting. The service will soon expand to Angola. To contribute to the Portuguese Service, send your story idea to lusophone@genderlinks.org.za

The articles on all services are uploaded on the GL website for online viewing and sent via the GL list - serve. The French and Portuguese articles are sent to the Francophone and Lusophone list-serves respectively. The pieces are also sent to editors in the region and beyond for republishing in their newspapers and other media outlets.
