Digital will set up AltaVista search sites in Sweden and Australia, part of its plan to establish mirror sites worldwide, company officials have announced.
Sweden's Telia TeleCom and Australia's Telstra Yellow Pages have agreed to set up local versions of AltaVista, and plan to sell advertising for their sites, officials say. The sites should be up by October, at http://www.internet.telia.com and http://www.altavista.yellowpages.com.au.
DEC plans to set up other AltaVista mirror sites in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and Latin America, and have local partners translate the user interface and help pages into the native languages, officials say.
