This question already has an answer here:
In journalistic writing, if I need to attach some necessary background information within a quote, what's the proper way to do it? I want to indicate that the information is something that I've produced, and not the person that I'm quoting. Here's an illustration:
Israel has strong companies that plan to go public in 2015, and that’s one of the reasons I came to Israel. Furthermore, the biomed and hi-tech sectors are still strong. We feel that the Fintech (financial-technological) sector is on the move. We recently witnessed a merger if Fintech companies (Fundtech, an Israeli company, was sold to D+H ), so we feel optimistic in this regard.
The author of the text is a journalist (his name is Nir Zalik), and the quoted individual is Bruce Aust. The added information (Fundtech, an Israeli company, was sold to D+H) is background information added by the journalist. How would I indicate that? In Hebrew a journalist often adds his initials to a background note within a text.
