Directory name
When will the ability to specify the names of the hyperlinks in Russian?

This is what I expect is already long enough. And as this is the reason because of which I did not get down to work on filling the site.

Welcome to the forum Maximum.

Are you referring to:

- folder names within a .tel and the links to those
- external website links
- or to the labels for links and other contact information?

maximum10-14-2009 04:33 PM

At least required that is: 
- folder names within and the links

Hi Maximum, I can understand the problem as transliterating Russian words can prove tedious. 

There's a difficulty that the Go-to link is actually a sub-domain name, and these will be available in Russian and other languages when .tel is available in Internationalized Domain Name format (IDN). There are plans to make .tel available as IDNs, but we do not currently have a timeline for the release.

However, we're going to release an update soon that will allow you to add a description to your go-to link in Russian, so that your page will show Go to - text in Russian - folder name in English. I think this should resolve your difficulties. 

What domains are you planning to populate once this is available?

Nadya, and when it will be possible? :mad:[/size]

Hi Maximum,

You can add labels in Russian as well as create folder names using Russian. For an example, go to http://nadya.tel/ - there's a sub-folder link "For those who speak Russian".

Then the name is subdomain converted to punycode. It is not nice, is not always handy, etc. 
I am in favor, to ask a directory name and a link on their own.

nadya01-19-2010 07:42 PM

As explained earlier, until IDNs are implemented, you cannot have non-ascii characters in the URL. We are currently working on a possibility to allow IDNs, but it's a complex process. 

Of course, it's up to you to create a folder in English and a label text in Russian, or to use Russian in the folder name. In any case, you should be in a position to create .tel projects oriented on the Russian market. We have a number of success stories for directory services such as murman.tel and rostov-don.tel that are actively populating and promoting their services in respective regions. 

I'm not sure what you mean by "to ask a directory name and a link on their own".

maximum01-24-2010 03:31 PM

I mean anchor text in russian.

nadya01-24-2010 04:47 PM

Hi maximum,

Anchor text is currently not supported in any language. A major reason is to always show to the user where they are being taken by an actionable item. We will, however, continue working on making the web links work better and look nicer in the new release of the .tel proxy.
