Taiwan Today, a dedicated online entity, was launched June 1, 2009 as the only media outlet to take top stories from the island’s mainstream Chinese-language newspapers and publish faithful English translations on the Internet. Through this unique service, TT provides readers with the opportunity to feel the true pulse of Taiwan’s vibrant society. In covering the latest business, cultural and political developments on the island Monday to Friday, TT publishes 12 stories per day, plus an assortment of photographs from across Taiwan. This comprehensive snapshot is supplemented by a package uploaded each Friday consisting of an editorial, commentaries, a political cartoon and features. TT’s extensive news coverage is further bolstered by forerunner Taiwan Journal’s encyclopedic archives, which faithfully chronicle Taiwan’s development across the economic, cultural, economic and social spheres. At present, articles are available from 1995 onwards, with those published before in the process of being added.
TT’s readers include media professionals, government officials, politicians, academics, business leaders and those seeking an accurate and balanced view of Taiwan.
