what are your thoughts Part 2

hello everybody, hope you guys/girls can give me your opinion and corrections on the last domains i will probably register. i say these are my last domains cause my source (which is a book) has finished.

التصنيxn--mgbg7aq6co2a.com
this one means supposed to mean manufacturing.com but the last character isn't copy and pasting correctly. anyone else have this problem.

المستحضxn--mgbgjqhu8gi.com
this one means lotion.com

العطلxn--mgb6af7bcs.com
again just like manufacturing this one doesn't copy and paste correctly. supposed to mean vacation.com. if you use the punny code converter they look correct but when you copy then paste them here the last character isnt the same. if anyone has this problem like me please let me know what i am doing wrong.

استطلاعxn--mgbai9avn9e.com
this means explore.com. this one copy and pasted correctly.

الكرنفالxn--mgba3a5difen.com
this one means carnival.com. this one copy and pasted correctly.

الغولفxn--mgb2bvakbx.com
i think this means "the golf" or just "golf" not to sure.this one copy and pasted correctly.

المعجناتxn--mgbajg8d3chk.com
this one means pastry.com. this one copy and pasted correctly.

any help with corrections or appraisel is greatly appreciated from all . thanks in advance.

any thoughts on these are welcome.

Exactly. It should display: التصنيع. Punycode is right. It means "the manufacturing".

It might be used as such. More like "the concoction". There are other words that are more common. You have the same problem with the last letter not copying correctly. Punycode is correct: المستحضر.

Again, punycode is fine and converts to: العطله, which is ok. The right spelling is العطلة but the two dots on the last letter are very frequently dropped. Means "the vacation" or the "holiday". Interestingly enough, the way you have it displayed in your original post can mean two things: depending on how it is prounounced. It can mean "the vacations" / "the holidays" but also it can mean "the defect".

"exploration". Good one.

"the carnival". Not very frequently used in Arabic, but correct.

"the golf". Correct.

Good luck!

Damn Arabic language. And I thought I owned Golf. I have:

الجولف

One of the letters is completely different...

I think you can safely attribute this to the PEBKAC virus.

Actually, Jose, this is also correct. No need to curse Arabic The word golf is not an Arabic word, and there is no "translation" of it. Instead, it is a phonetic transliteration using Arabic characters. What this also means, is that both spellings are correct. I would even venture as far as saying that yours is the more popular (I am not saying "more correct") spelling.

Hang on to that domain!

Re: what are your thoughts Part 2

Haha. Seems like everyone has golf!

Well, the good news is that all four versions are correct. Two are "golf" and two are "the golf". In my personal opinion, I would say in this case "the golf" are slightly (but not significantly) better than just "golf". All are equally correct.
