Today we're proud to launch a new look for The Interpreter.

The Interpreter began in November 2007 when it was unusual for a think tank to engage in daily online commentary and analysis. The field is now more crowded, but The Interpreter remains not just Australia's premier international policy forum but a strong voice in Asian and American foreign policy debates. It is a globally recognised site with a distinctly Australian character.

At the core of The Interpreter's success is the hundreds of researchers, journalists, diplomats, academics, officials, political leaders and readers who have contributed over the years. Thank you for taking part in what has become such an indispensable part of the online conversation about world events.

This new design modernises the look and feel of the site, will add improved features for reader commentary and will be easier to read on tablets and mobiles. It ensures that The Interpreter remains at the forefront of online policy commentary and analysis, and gives us a platform to reach new audiences. We hope you enjoy it.
