I am always on the look out for new information sources about emerging economies, and I recently came across the US based service East View Information Services (http://www.eastview.com) for the first time. It is a provider of information products and services in world languages and English translation, which has just announced the addition of Arabia Inform (http://www.arabiainform.com) online databases to its offerings from the Middle East. Arabia Inform, which is headquartered in Cairo, has been providing services mainly to the academic world since 1997, including cover-to-cover monitoring, indexing and analysis of Arabic print media through its Middle East Monitor service. Arabia Informís offerings include Middle East Monitor (an Arabic media monitoring, documentation and analysis service), AskZad (a virtual library and databank of Middle East information) and Moheet (an Arabic-language news website). In summer 2009, Arabia Inform plans to launch Acumen Media Intelligence, which focuses on media monitoring and analysis for business. The company is now targeting western companies with branches or interests in the Middle East, by providing an English user interface, and pricing models and access methods that are in line with North American and European academic, corporate, and government users. East View Information Services has been providing content emanating from Russia, the former Soviet Union and Asia since 1989, and has included Middle East coverage since 2008. It includes news, legislation, market data, financial and government information. At the same time, in a separate move, Google is improving its Middle eastern coverage by adding a Farsi translation tool to its translation service, allowing web users to translate blog posts and Twitter messages written in Farsi in to English (http://digbig.com/4yyek).
