Chinese .com-in-IDN Question

Hi,

Sorry for my ignorance--has Verisign decided on a Chinese .com equivalent to apply for, yet? If not, does anyone know who at Verisign is tasked with the determination?

Thanks.

If verisign decided i don't think anyone outside the company would know about it until ICANN publishes the requested strings around 5 months from now (Anytime from April 12 to May 1).

Some officials from VeriSign have said that they will apply for the transliteration version of .com. For Chinese, that is 康姆.

公司 is the translation of "company" and Verisign will NOT apply for it.

Quote:
Verisign does not operate “.company” in ASCII text, and it is not likely that we’d seek it in other scripts. Our primary interest would be in a Chinese transliteration of the three-letter extension “.com,” not the word company.

Re: Chinese .com-in-IDN Question

James, unless you find that file you referred to in the other thread, I would have to think that 康姆 is just, at best, a proposition and by no mean is definitive

Re: Chinese .com-in-IDN Question

Thanks.

I remember talking to some Chinese students about it once and they didn't associate .com with anything particular in Chinese. I don't know, maybe what's most important is that whatever Verisign chooses isn't ugly/offensive in some way and is commonly understood to be the official .com variant, and that it's activated before .cn as .中国 gets widespread use.
