Online news portal Huffington Post to expand with German edition


BERLIN – The Huffington Post is expanding its footprint in Europe with a German language edition.

The online news portal says it is partnering with German company Tomorrow Focus AG to launch the site in Europe’s biggest news market this fall.

Tomorrow Focus said in a statement Monday that the site will be produced in Munich and cater to readers in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The Huffington Post already has international editions in Britain, Canada, France, Italy and Spain. A Japanese version is due to launch in May.

The U.S. version of the site was founded by Ariana Huffington in 2005 and bought by AOL Inc. in 2011.
