IDN CN length - conspiracy against English of course...

while quick surfing Google site data,

came across :

www.杭州新东方中西医结合医院.中国

Hangzhou Oriental Hospital of Integrated Traditional and Western Medicine. China


12 characters or
HOHITWM.CN for a better acronym to make the ASCII / LLLL crowd happy ??

or HangzhouOrientalHospitalofIntegratedTraditionalandWesternMedicine.CN ?

65 characters ???

12 characters is much more complicated than 65.

And how are people who speak English going to find this site ?
(As if a Chinese domain/ Chinese website is a conspiracy to avoid an English visitor)

site:.中国 is at 31,000 now....very nice and steady...

site:公司.cn is at 200 ...wonderfully pathetic...

and
site:公司.中国 - did not match any documents....ziltch..nada...

That is one of the great advantages of Chinese. It is so much more compact than English. Japanese is also more compact than English though not quite to the same extent as Chinese.

Chinese and Japanese writers have a great advantage when it comes to systems like twitter which have a message size limit. Chinese and Japanese writers can say much more in a tweet than can an English writer.

Your english translation misses the word 新 which means "New" as well, so the english translated one should even be longer.
