Yandex to launch news in the Uzbek language
Tashkent, Uzbekistan (UzDaily.com) -- Yandex.News plans to collect and display media materials that are published in Uzbek. This will help local publications to attract a new audience, and users will be able to choose in which language to read the news.
“People should have complete and objective information about the events, so we want to show all the news - both in Russian and in Uzbek. Many local publications are already transmitting Russian-language articles to us. We expect the media to share the materials they publish in Uzbek. Then our users will be aware of all the news,” Evgeny Lukyanchikov, Yandex Regional Director in Uzbekistan, said.
Now Yandex.News work in Uzbekistan only in Russian. The service receives messages from partners and forms the news picture of the day: it highlights important and distributes news according to headings. Messages about the same event are combined into plots. On the plot page, you can read what happened, see photos and videos and find out what media write about it. At the same time, the service does not publish materials of publications, but uses only fragments and headings. To read the article, you can go to the media website.
The most important events in Uzbekistan and in the world go to yandex.uz. This also happens without human intervention. When choosing the main news, the service takes into account various factors, including the amount of materials about the event and the credibility of the media. In the same way, the service will work with news in the Uzbek language.
Any publication that publishes exclusive materials in Russian or in Uzbek (in Latin) can become a partner of the service.
