.com vs. .com

I may have missed this in the other threads but I'll bring it up here. If someone has an IDN.com domain and automatically has the reg rights to an IDN.IDN (.com in that language) domain I assume there will be no action to take if .com remains .com for that language. Am I correct? Won't some countries (languages) still retain the .com extension even after translation? (Or any other extension for that matter). Looking for comments...

Re: .com vs. .com

you are right,

French, Spanish and others are already fully internationalized, in the sense that .com makes sense in these languages and will not have to be translated.

Same for .net, same for .org

Yes, All languages will retain the ASCII .com extension even after translation, some just won't have a translation and will only retain ASCII .com like the samples you used above.

Well, we could probably come up with better abbreviations than "com" for Spanish and French.

.biz would be better served in (Mexican) Spanish as .neg - short for negocio

plus I've heard people use the plural abbreviation "infos" more than "info" for informacion.

Re: .com vs. .com

We are waiting for ".kom" latin script languages which do not use "c" in the word commercial.

Well, in French and Spanish it does make sense at least: commerce and comercio. Don't know how popular these expression are though.

Which language would that be? In German there is "Kommerz" but it's actually quite unpopular.

I don't really think a translation of .com is needed for Latin scripts.

Re: .com vs. .com

For example, in Polish, "c" sounds like "ts", and not "k". So, if you were to transliterate .com, it would be .kom.

All right. That makes sense. For German I can't think of any good alternative for .com - even though .com doesn't really mean anything in German.

Anyway, even in America many people don't know what it means.

Hence the alternative spellings for Tsar/Csar.

Dot Com, however, is a Brand not a Generic.

Re: .com vs. .com

If America thinks her advanced technology rather than sound finance and hard work are going to save her skin then she has miscalculated.

Exactly. Everyone knows and likes it, no matter what it means. That's why I wouldn't want to swap it for any translation in Latin script.

With extensions it's all about trust and recognition and not (so much) about their meanings. That's why stocks.org is better than stocks.biz imo.

Re: .com vs. .com

what about the aging of the domain?? Once it becomes Idn,KOM will it be a brand new ball game for everyone or will the domain aging of the .com transfer once .KOM is activated?

Re: .com vs. .com

Do you mean if the .com was registered in 2006 will the .kom retain that same date? I would guess no.
