Chinese paper to go bilingual

Posted by jtsmyth8 on December 5, 2007

The Chinese free newspaper my paper will become a bilingual daily from next month and with a ground-breaking ingredient. Bilingual papers usually have stories that have been translated from sister publications, but the new my paper will have two distinct teams of journalists, one filing in English, the other Chinese.

The expanded paper will present ‘a new package never seen before, offering the best of both worlds for Singaporeans’, said Dr Tony Tan, chairman of publisher Singapore Press Holdings on Wednesday.

Readers can expect a ‘uniquely blended’ newspaper produced by experienced English and Chinese journalists chasing exclusives while covering the news ‘from a fresh perspective’.

The revamped tabloid paper will have an editorial staff of 50 producing its 48 pages – double its current 24 – and will hit the streets from Monday to Friday. (story)
