Reuters will unveil a redesigned website later this year, redirecting users from most of its regional editions of Reuters.com to the new, global site.
The website will offer “an improved user experience, better functionality and design, more expert curation and all the comprehensive, real-time news our readers expect,” according to a note from Simon Hutson, managing director of Reuters Consumer.
A "wide range of enhancements in how we present and deliver our news” will also come to the new Reuters.com, he added.
Reuters wants to “improve our service” to its professional audience, Hutson told Publishers Daily.
“To do this, we are transforming Reuters.com, moving away from a disparate and uneven collection of regional editions — most of which operate as automated news feeds — to focus on an exciting and vastly-improved global edition.”
News will continue to be published in multiple languages.
The company believes the new website will help unify its news delivery.
“We will share more details about the new website later this year, but we have been working hard on a whole range of enhancements to offer users a more comprehensive and modern digital news experience,” Hutson said.
They include changes to the look and feel of the site, as well as improved content curation.
