Also you can get a better deal with IDN.. Notice how all commercial terms that have high GAKT are selling for six figures nowadays in English.
Again, I was not clear, sorry. I was speaking more of regular generics as opposed to brandables.

Re: Several Newbie Questions

As you may have gathered from the replies you can't make observations and then try to apply them to all IDN's in general. It has to be specific to a country or language. Pick a country and then ask the questions you are posing about that country/language in particular. The answer for one country/language may be different than for another.

Re: Several Newbie Questions

Not directly in response to your questions and I'm just a hobbyist, but...trying to avoid work.

I would also add to be careful with Trends. Be sure to look past the language to whether the usage of the term is diverse and not localized to one region--e.g., a Chinese word that is only used in Taiwan.

Another mistake I made when starting out was piddling around with dozens of cheap/worthless domains, instead of just investing that money on a few solid ones. I was never an ascii domainer so maybe that's already obvious to you.

Re: Several Newbie Questions

great questions...

re: Africa my opinion only
I believe that French, Portuguese, and Arabic will be successful there over time.

Again, mobile phone usage will be the key for internet access there.

transliteration:
russian ---very unique
japanese--- unique..often odd transliterations that avoid pluralizations - no (s) at the end so the singular and the plural are implied by the usage etc...

chinese --transliterations.... GuGe is google.... in general avoid

korean-- transliterations .... very powerful and accurate quickly on the web

arabic--- my observation.....all over the map based on N. Africa or Gulf states multiple spellings and use of diacritics


relative to search engines...

Yahoo -Japan
Baidu --China
Yandex --Russia
naver-- Korea

are all at 75% so the google numbers in general would be 3x etc....
