I'm trying to compile a list of how is the word 'bitcoin' written in different languages used all over the world?

This is what we have so far:

Latin: bitcoin
Japanese: ビットコイン
Chinese: 比特币
Hebrew: ביטקוין
Cyrillic: биткoйн
Hindi, Marathi: बिटकॉइन
Arabic: بتكوين
Greek: μπίτκoϊν

Your input as addition or correction is highly appreciated.

I'm trying to compile a list of how is the word 'bitcoin' written in different languages used all over the world, if it differs from 'bitcoin' of course? Your input is highly appreciated.

Most of the time it is Bitcoin. Here's a site that translates Bitcoin into other languages: http://en.translatethings.com/b/i/t/bitcoin.html

If you download MultiBit from multibit.org you can see the word 'bitcoin' translated into a couple of dozen languages.
For instance the tooltip on the 'Send' tab is "Send bitcoin to someone".
You can change the language on the 'Preferences' tab.

The target translation languages are at translate.multibit.org.

Nobody translates it, though. I always say "bitcoin", in all languages I can speak/write (which happen to be Portuguese, French, and English).

I call it Bitcoin and so does everyone I know.
I must say it's a funny translation, though. Grin

In Hebrew it is usually simply transliterated as ביטקוין.
There is also a translation of sorts, transliterated as "Matbit", and written מטביט or מטבית.

It's Bitcoin (mind the B) in german whilst being bitcoin (mind the b) in Frisonian.

The paining (sic!) is done with the QPainter class inside the paintEvent() method.

Well, although nobody says "Bitmünze" in Germany, it would be the direct translation. But then again, nobody does it because its a proper name and is not translated for that reason (like "McDonalds", "Abraham Lincoln" or "Pizza").

Guys, did I ask you to translate 'bit' and 'coin'?  Smiley

My original question is: How is 'bitcoin' written in different languages? If there is a popular translation already in use, well, then use it but write it in the corresponding alphabets. Thanks for all relevant inputs so far.

Spelled in Russian: биткoин

But, yeah, nobody does it since it's a proper name...

Err, actually, computer is translated to "computador" in Portuguese and "ordinateur" (seriously!) in French. Internet is not translated.

Computer can be translated to/used as "Rechner" (calculator), internet sometimes gets jokingly called "Internetz" ("Netz" = engl. net) in German.
Bitcoin(s) however are probably never going to be translated as "Bitmünze" - sounds weird to my ears and not "sexy" at all.

I don't really get the OP: Do you want "Bitcoin" written in different alphabets (you already had hebrew, latin, japanese, cyrillic...) or "translations" (mostly the "coin" part in local language) or simply if we'd write Bitcoin with a capital B (if there are capital letters in that alphabet that is...), because I guess besides using a "k" in "coin" there's not much room for alternate spellings...
