Microsoft and Baidu have announced a partnership to provide English language search results.

Baidu, the largest web company in China, made the announcement on Monday, with search engine results from Baidu to be directed to Microsoft's Bing.

It is hoped that the move will help Microsoft establish a bigger web presence in China, which is the world's biggest internet market, of which Baidu dominates over 75%.

It is not the first time the two firms have worked together, having previously done so on mobile platforms, and the service is expected to be launched later this year.
