IGF Sessions on IDN's tomorrow 11:00 & 14:30 Nairobi time (4:00 & 7:30EST)

Title: IDNs and new gTLDs: why local languages are the answer to a truly global Internet

Background Paper: link

Status:
ACCEPTED

Concise Description:
Description:
Top-level domains in different languages have only just begun to tap into the global demand for access to and communication over the Internet. IDNs and new gTLDs may be the single most effective entry point into the global Internet infrastructure for the non-English speaking world. This session will talk to those at the forefront of this extraordinary expansion and review where we are, what we have learned, and where we are going.

Approach:
There is a wealth of new information about non-English domain extensions, including: the initial results and impact of IDNs in countries as diverse as Russia, Israel and Saudi Arabia; plans to provide hundreds of new non-English top-level domains in the next year; and studies of the nascent IDN market and what they can tell us about use and demand.

Issues to be tackled include:
• Metrics of multilingualism online, and what’s wrong with them
• Experiences and lessons of IDN operators one year in
• The impact of IDN.IDN Internet addresses globally
• The challenges still remaining for the non-Latin world
• Future opportunities and changes

Once again, the terminology is flawed.

Why are languages called "local languages"?

The "non-Latin world" is the world beyond Latin America.

Wrongly uses the term "multilingualism" to mean the use of a single language.
