Any Persian IDNF members?

I'm just looking for a translation from any Farsi speaking forum members amongst us.

Just picked up رایانه.net, which translates as 'computer'. Google pages equal 757,000. Google images gives 665 pic results, and after checking the first few pages seems to be of mainly computers, laptops, etc.

Just hoping someone can verify this translation for me please?

Cheers!

Thanks g.

I figured 'computer' is probably already gone, but I just thought I'd ask everyone anyway.

Technology or IT still wouldn't be too bad.

Re: Any Persian IDNF members?

Well, while I am not Persian nor do I speak Farsi I'll give it a shot.

My usual Persian dictionary does not want to translate this term. However, according to Wikipedia it is 'computer'. My guess would be that this case is similar to one we discussed on the boards a week or so ago - with a poster asking about the term 'persian'. It seems the problem was this letter ی. It appears that there is an Arabic and Farsi version of this letter. Wikipedia seems to use the Arabic version most of the time.

My dictionary says this is the term for 'computer': رايانه which is just one letter different from رایانه. Your term has the higher Ovt (121 vs. 29) but has the lower number of Google results (0.78M vs. 1.66M).

So I don't really know what to think. Both terms have decent results and both seem to be used. Which one is technically correct - I don't know. BTW, the .net is available on that other term. Hope that helps somewhat.
