NewsML v1.0 offers a way to identify the content of a news item. It can help to create and manage information components (e.g., photographs and associated text), to permit updating of news content, and to help subscribers manage information overload by packaging and delivering to them specific news content from multiple sources. NewsML will support multilingual versions of content by synchronizing translations when content is updated. The standard also will help news organizations manage royalty payments and subscriptions.
