WSJ to launch German site
Global - The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) will extend its presence in Germany with the introduction of a German website and a suite of digital products in January 2012.
The move is part of WSJ's global digital expansion which already includes WSJ China and WSJ Japan. The German site will include a newswire service and be available across mobile and tablet applications.
Knut Engelmann has been appointed as managing editor and is responsible for overseeing the combined Dow Jones newswire and German website.
"Germany is an economic powerhouse and its relative importance in our increasingly complex world is growing," Dow Jones & Company editor-in-chief and The Wall Street Journal managing editor Robert Thomson, said.
"But that means German businesses, professionals and leaders must have instant access to the highest quality news from around the globe."
