Factiva Adds Japanese News Resource

Factiva ( has announced an agreement to add The Yomiuri Shimbun (Japanese language), The Yomiuri Shimbun News Wire (Japanese language), and The Daily Yomiuri (English language) to its collection of global news and business information. Factiva will receive up to 1,000 articles per day from the Yomiuri collection, which will provide a significant increase in local Japanese-language content for Factiva users.

Yomiuri Shimbun is a leading newspaper in Japan. It has a daily circulation of more than 10 million, which is claimed to be the largest of any newspaper worldwide. As many as 1,000 reporters cover daily news in Japan and more than 100 correspondents cover news outside the country. According to the announcement, Factiva is the only foreign content provider to offer both of the Yomiuri Japanese daily papers and Yomiuri news wire and also to offer the only single content solution with multiple-language interfaces and multilingual content that covers nearly 8,000 sources.

"The Yomiuri collection of newspapers and news wires is extremely valuable to our customers in Japan and makes an excellent addition to the Factiva content collection," said Simon Wright, Factiva's sales director for the Asia Pacific region. "This relationship gives our customers access to valuable business insight from a leading Japanese news source that can provide a regional perspective, further enhancing our customers' ability to make better business decisions."
