London/Paris (Nov. 26, 2004)—Dow Jones Newswires has announced the launch of "DJ Bourse Pro," a real-time, French-language, premium financial-news service for financial professionals.

"DJ Bourse Pro" is available via the information systems of vendors including Bloomberg, FIDES, Reuters, Traderforce, Telpress and Tenfore.

The service includes real-time news flashes on French company announcements, exchange notices and other service features. These include running market commentary, economic data, analysis and commentary on all segments of French financial markets, as well as highlights of key international markets. "DJ Bourse Pro" is an extension of the Dow Jones Newswires successful French-language service "DJ Bourse Web" launched four years ago. "DJ Bourse Web" now is available widely via bank and broker-customer Web sites, as well as financial-information vendors.

"This launch reflects our commitment to build and expand our local-language services in Europe," said Michael Bergmeijer, vice president of international sales and marketing, Dow Jones Newswires. "We intend to grow the ‘Pro’ service through 2005 by providing subscribers with more added-value content, and we will be hiring more journalists to deliver on this."

Dow Jones Newswires has developed news services in 10 languages; including Dutch, French, German, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.
