Factiva Adds New German Content, French- and German-Language User Interfaces

Factiva, a Dow Jones & Reuters Co., has announced a joint marketing and content agreement with GENIOS Economic Databases, a division of the Handelsblatt Publishing Group, a leading online business information service in Germany, that will enrich Factiva's offering of top German sources. In addition to the new content, Factiva is announcing the availability of French- and German-language user interfaces for Factiva.com, the recently launched Web-based global news and business information service.

Through the content partnership with GENIOS, Factiva will acquire key German business newspapers, business periodicals, and regional newspapers, as well as Handelsblatt, which will be available through Factiva on the day of publication.

"Factiva is furthering its efforts to provide the world-class global news and business information that our customers need to make better business decisionsóboth globally and locally," said Clare Hart, president and CEO of Factiva. "Multiple-language user interfaces as well as premier global content demonstrate Factiva's continued commitment to meet the needs of the global enterprise."

"The combination of the GENIOS publications and Factiva's content set will allow us to better serve our customers and make more informed business decisions within the German marketplace," said FelicitasSchneider, assistant principal of Roland Berger & Partner GmbH.

Driven by a strong demand from global customers for interfaces in multiple languages, Factiva now offers access to French- and German-language user interfaces in Factiva.com. Customers in France and Germany, and other speakers of French and German around the world, will now be able to more easily research and track news and business information about their markets, customers, and competitors.

Users of the French and German interfaces will have access to the full range of product features available through the English Factiva.com interface. Now French, German, and English interfaces are available for three Factiva products: Factiva.com, Factiva Search Module, and Factiva Track Module.
