I will present new models to compute the rest-frame ultraviolet emission from young galaxies at high redshift. The models include recent advances in the theories of stellar interiors and atmospheres to interpret the ionizing and non-ionizing radiation from star-forming galaxies. I will show how such properties depend on current uncertainties in the evolution of massive stars and on the main adjustable parameters of the models. I will also describe the implications of these models for the interpretation of the combined stellar and nebular emission from young galaxies.
