Discovery News for Japan

Though I understand that it will happen after the "full support" of WDS Japanization,  please announce the plan for Discovery News Japanization. Many Japanese banks, including the three largest, requires enriched Japanese news to monitor their loan customers.

    Ryuichi - I believe Q2, if you have a specific deal/revenue this feature can be tied to, please email to myself and John Pecorari to assist with prioritization

    Thank you very much Phil. I will contact you and John as needed.

    I have another question. Does webhose crawl "Nikkei"? Nikkei is a popular newspaper focusing in business. It issues several newspapers and magazines related to business & IT. Japanese clients mainly rely on Nikkei as a source.

    Yes, Nikkei is available in our future Japanese feed.   We can also always request new sites be added if they do not exist (And are not behind a paywall)

    Regarding requesting new sites, please keep in mind there is a one time cost for every site added even if they aren't behind a paywall.
