NeuStar Launches 5 New Languages for .BIZ

We launched 5 new languages for IDN in .BIZ today. They are Danish (da), Icelandic (is), Norwegian (no), Spanish (es) and Swedish (sv). Prior to this, the only language available in .BIZ was German (de), launched in October 2004.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank DK-Hostmaster, ISNIC, NORID, NIC-SE and Cary Karp of MuseDoma for their help and advice on these tables. The work on these tables really started 2 years ago when we first had the intention to launch additional languages, so I am very proud and relieved that they made it out!
