Hi all!

First of all I'd like to say 'hi' to everyone here and I look forward to getting into IDNs... long time domainer, new to IDNs, quickly becoming a convert.

I do have a very basic question as to how you guys are entering your names into your browser to reg. Are you using a keyboard with the non-latin characters on it? Is there some piece of software that is translating your latin characters for you? What's the best way to go about this?

Thanks for any and all help and hope to be around for a while!

Re: Hi all!

The two most valuable keystrokes for an IDNer are Ctrl-c and Ctrl-v

Re: Hi all!

Well, it would seem that all those old latin character domainer tricks (and sites) still apply... easy enough :p

welcome rockruler, I second fka200 on the use on google translate, just be sure to back up the translation with other tools, ie https: //adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal (be sure to use 'exact' and not 'broad') there are several tools/techniques out there use as many as you can. btw a native is best usually.

idntools.com has a slew of tools listed as well as a very nice daily drop list. I would highly recommend subscribing to the drop list.

other tools.

1. https:// adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal
2. check to see if the term is used by itself in ads on local version of google (google.jp for example)
3. check images (turn on off safe search)
..
..

cheers
tee1

Re: Hi all!

Welcome Rockruler - in the world of IDNs, you have come to the right place.
One thing that might help you with typing in the various languages would be the new virtual keyboards that Google has now released on there local search engines.

As Tee1 also mentioned, head over to IDNTools.com and sign up to receive the drop list. Have fun.

Alex

Re: Hi all!

Rockruler welcome to IDNF.

wikipedia translations are often helpful for many terms.
Just to see how the term is used.

Also befriend a native speaker, here, or on any of the social networks online.

Seems most have addressed the 2nd question i.e. on the translation.

For the 1st question i.e. how to enter non-latin characters, Rockruler your Windows should come with different languages input methods, just activate the one you are prepared to use, then by pressing hot keys (e.g. ctrl space) you can switch your keyboard instantly between latin and the other characters.
