Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

電漿電視.com 'Plasma TV'
等离子电视机.com 'Plasma TV'
液晶电视机.com 'LCD TV'
照相手機.com 'Photographic mobile phones'

Can anyone give me an idea of how common/accurate these terms are?

I've found reg'ing in Chinese pretty tough, as most terms are taken or blocked. There also seems to be quite a few different ways to write these TV IDN's.

Any help would be most appreciated!

Re: Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

照相手機 at least seems used. Did you take the traditional version?

No - becasue I don't know what it is
My guess is the valuable forms of these terms are already taken anyway - but if anyone knows what they are I'd really appreciate to find out!

Thanks!

The Simplified form of 照相手機 is 照相手机 and it was available when you regged this but is blocked now. Simplified one will get you more traffic because it's used in China.

Hmm...was available.

That's unfair. I spent quite a while playing around with translators trying to find anything of value. Whether or not someone got the idea to grab the simplified form by reading my post for help, well I can't be to sure.

I guess that's just the risk in posting on this forum for help...people may well steal your ideas

Giant meant that you yourself blocked the simplified form once you registered the traditional form.

Had you registered the simplified form instead, you would've automatically blocked registration of the traditional form.

電漿電視.com seems pretty good.

The guy that grabbed the Simplified form is actually you yourself. Got it?

Re: Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

So the guy who regged the traditional form is not you?

In future when you want to ask before reg, you should do so in private... Giant, Touchring and I are all fluent in Chinese, and I'll be happy to help out.

No, no - I did reg all of these kenne.

So this happens with every Chinese term that is registered? Take the simple form & the traditional gets blocked, and vice versa?

What an idiot I am! My ignorance of IDN registration astounds me....:o (this must be quite obvious!)

Thank you very much guys for setting me straight on this before I wreck anymore perfectly good Chinese IDN's!

And thanks kenne for your offer of help via PM - I greatly appreciate it. That's very kind of you to help this fool out.

Well in light of all this, have I done the same thing and ruined the plasma tv's and LCD tv IDN's?

Thanks again

Re: Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

I must admit that I've done the same thing before (registering the wrong form)

等离子电视机.com 'Plasma TV'
液晶电视机.com 'LCD TV'

are both in simplified form. Good luck!

I think 等离子电视机 is 'Plasma TV set', and 等离子电视 is 'Plasma TV', which is the primary term.

Re: Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

I learned a little trick when dealing with Chinese Traditional and Simplified terms. This might be old news to others but...

If you have the traditional form and don't quite know what the simplified form might be, but the traditional term into Baidu.com (search engine). If you look at the search bar after clicking 'search' you term has now been changed to the simplified form. And if it doesn't change it means you have the simplified form or that the two forms are the same.

Re: Chinese IDN's - Generic enough?

Thank you all so much!

An avalanche of help and advice! I greatly appreciate everyone's input to my thread

I have little to offer in return, but if you're ever stuck for an Aussie translation, just ask

等离子电视.com was gone, but I now have the .net - thank you qqjj!

I will continue to dig using Baidu and khngai and see what's left.

Kindest regards to all!

You are welcome. I have too many .net's. Otherwise I'd grab it.

You are not the only one who have done the same mistake, if u read the threads not long ago, i asked the same because i made this mistake.

Touchring told me about iask.com and i think is better than baidu.com because u get not only the simplified term but the the english translation. very helpful when ur chinese native helpers arent around.
