Can anyone confirm these translations?

查寻 (search)?

财政 (finance)?

债券 (bonds)?

Registered long ago, but I have question marks next to the definitions for various reasons which I can't recall anymore... I know that 查寻 (search) is a question because there are multiple definitions and this particular variation returns only 500,000 SERP in Baidu.

Much appreciated

Happy New Year and a gratuitous bump -- sorry --

Don't make me drive to my mother-in-law's to beg for a translation.

My Acid test is to put both term and postulated translation in Google. High number suggests good translation:

查寻 (search)? 3,650,000 against 9,780,000

财政 (finance)? 659,000 against 6,760,000

债券 (bonds)? 47,000 against 2,520,000

This suggest to me that there is a likelihood that the "Search" is good and in common usage, whereas finance looks much less likely and bonds is completely non-starter. This approach does not involve any linguistic understanding, but how useful it is I will leave you to decide.

Best Regards
Dave Wrixon

Thanks Dave -- that's another data point I have to check

OK, found out 财政 is financial policy, financial plan or strategy, so it is not the broad 'Finance' that we refer to in English.

Re: Can anyone confirm these translations?

财政 means corporate/public finance, and is often used as adjective, e.g. finance budget - 财政预算, or ministry of finance - 财政部.

The "finance" in English that is valuable as a domain - 'personal finance' - is a different word in Chinese.

Personal finance in Chinese was registered in 2000 Nov by a guy from China.

You guys might want to exercise more caution when you register or buy Chinese domains - a lot of terms that are popular in English might not be so in Chinese.  For example, domains related to luck and fortune are worth more than generics.
