The Hollywood Reporter Launches Digital Edition in 12 Languages
The Hollywood Reporter announced this week the launch of a digital edition that will be available in 12 languages in addition to English. The electronic replica of its daily magazine is being called The Hollywood Reporter, Digital Edition, and is now available via subscription.
The digital edition is enabled with content management tools including interactive tables of content, cross-title searching, clickable URLs, offline reading and archived back issues, and the tool is being powered by NewspaperDirect Inc., a digital editions provider.
“The Hollywood Reporter has always been a digital leader by continually investing in our Web site, electronic applications and mobile products,” said Publisher John Kilcullen, who is also the senior vice president of Nielsen Business Media’s Film and Performing Arts Group. “This launch serves the needs of our growing global audience by providing real-time industry information and exclusive analysis in multiple languages. Our new digital version is designed to enhance our readers’ experience with advanced content management tools and easy accessibility via the Web and mobile devices.”
One feature of the new digital edition is an interactive radio that provides text-to-voice conversion, allowing subscribers to listen to articles in English or translated into any one of six other languages. Readers can click on the desired content and listen to it in their choice of Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese or Russian. Text-to-text translations are available from English to 12 languages: Cantonese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish or Swedish.
