Transcontinental Media of Montreal has formed an agreement with NewspaperDirect of Vancouver to create digital editions of 12 of its community newspapers. Electronic versions of The Journal-Pioneer, The Western Star, The Guardian, La Nouvelle Union and The Telegram have already been released. The remaining titles will become available within several months.The digital editions, accessed from a Web browser, seek to replicate the full printed versions of the papers, including advertisements. "We researched a number of the available digital edition solutions in the market and NewspaperDirect's technology demonstrated that it was most leading edge and fitting for our needs," said Marc-Noel Ouellette, senior vice-president of the newspaper group at Transcontinental. "As part of Transcontinental's online strategy, partnering with this niche-based company was very inline with our growth objectives."
