Re: A few Chinese IDN to appraise

杀毒 seems more commonly used. But "anti-virus" is probably good too.

Unbelievable! How can an American be so good in Chinese domain names?!

I tried very hard, 2 years ago, to find a translation of "antivirus", I failed!

You got their best and primary term my friend.

反病毒.com : Excellent
战略.com : Excellent

投资银行.com : good

Thanks for the kind comments -- I'm extremely relieved right now. I registered these last year and after asking many, many native Chinese speakers couldn't get a definitive answer.

I lived most of my life in Hong Kong, so I should be better at Chinese, but I'm not!

Yes, 杀毒 is the popular word used in China. 反病毒 is also a primary word, but people tend to use 2 characters more, and 反病毒 is popular among Cantonese.

Re: A few Chinese IDN to appraise

The secret? Register 100s Simplified Chinese names and hope for the best!

I jest, but I'm pretty sure alot of my Chinese IDN are bottom-of-the-barrel stuff. I stopped registering Chinese IDN last year because I found Japanese and Russian much easier to figure out.

I speak Cantonese, but that's actually hurt me, as I don't read or write. It gave me almost no advantage... it's a difficult language because it's full of descriptive synonyms. For instance, in Hong Kong at least, 'condom' is the same as saying 'safety harness' or 'seatbelt'.

But don't give up -- the difficulty is precisely the reason you can still probably find some good names. Just try to shoot for a good average.

If i could offer some advice i would say just double and triple check your terms with overture, google.... if you google a term alot of the times the english word will appear somewhere near it, you just have to try and figuire it out, Also a lil slick trick it to google something for the Image, thats can help you narrow things down as well.

Re: A few Chinese IDN to appraise

The 2 most popular terms are 杀毒, ovt 107 (as Giant has mentioned) and 防毒, ovt 123.

防病毒 is the official term printed on product websites.
