The Financial Times launched Tuesday a new service in Latin America providing FT news and analysis translated into Spanish.

Available through the FT Syndication service, which offers media organizations the right to republish FT content, subscribers will receive 10 articles per week covering international trends and developments relevant to Latin America.

The service will include two articles a day in Spanish from Monday to Friday, available through print or digital channels. Content will include an opinion piece written by an FT columnist and a news story from the world news, global economy or companies section.

“The demand for global journalism in Latin America is increasing and the region’s companies are looking for internationally-focused news to help with global negotiations and decision-making,” said FT B2B Managing Director Caspar de Bono in a statement. “By providing relevant news in the local language, this service helps media organizations complement their own editorial with compelling FT content. It’s a cost-effective way to increase readership, gain a competitive edge and fulfill the demand for trusted global intelligence using the FT’s world class news and analysis.”

The FT launched a dedicated mobile app in Latin America last year and has seen strong growth in the region.
