Factiva Adds Nikkei Publications, New Chinese- and Japanese-Language Interfaces

Factiva has announced an agreement with The Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc. (Nikkei), Japan's leading financial newspaper publisher, to add the English-language Nikkei Report and Nikkei Weekly to its collection of global news and business information. The company also announced that it has introduced Chinese- and Japanese-language interfaces to the Factiva Search Module and Factiva Track Module.

Nikkei Newspapers
The Nikkei Report provides comprehensive Japanese business news in English. Each business day, the service translates more than 100 key articles appearing in The Nihon Keizai Shimbun, as well as in three other Nikkei newspapers. Backed by more than 1,400 veteran journalists, the Nikkei Report delivers extensive coverage of the latest trends in politics, the economy, industry, technology, and financial markets in Japan.

The Nikkei Weekly is the only English-language economic journal published in Japan. According to the announcement, the newspaper has a consistent editorial policy of observing Japan and Asia from an international viewpoint. The Nikkei Weekly provides detailed analyses of the business news of the region and a broad, in-depth treatment of the reasons behind current events. In addition, it offers comprehensive yet concise week-by-week coverage of major business topics.

New Interfaces
According to the announcement, the introduction of Factiva's new interfaces will enable Chinese- and Japanese-speaking customers to more easily integrate Factiva's global content into their intranets and portals. In addition, these users can research and monitor news and business information about their customers, competitors, and markets. Groups of employees can now share information more efficiently on specific companies, industries, or subjects that influence their decisions and raise organizational intelligence.

Both Factiva Search Module and Factiva Track Module are part of Factiva Integration, a suite of tools that's designed to enable companies to integrate Factiva's collection of global news and business information into intranets, portals, and mobile devices.
