        have any currency in the markets you mention and how you might promote the names you want in those societies when the registry may not be doing much to promote .biz.  I don't know whether Neulevel is doing more than Afilias.

If you plan to spend money on Asian language .biz registrations, use a translation service and don't forget that Beijing is unifying the PRC's 1.3 billion people with a standard Mandarin and that China is undergoing an economic revolution.  But don't be surprised if the net smart in the likes of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen have already grabbed the best names in traditional and simplified characters as well as pinyin.  Those names not registered to residents of the mainland China, Hong Kong and Macao have often gone to Taiwanese,Koreans and Japanese.  Good luck - it's a tough world.
