Linguistic Search

Typos

Accommodating linguistic variations such as transcription variants and phonetic similarities undoubtedly forms the heart of any global name matching endeavour. However, in most cases it will also be appropriate to add a certain degree of tolerance for typographic errors.

Traphoty offers flexible possibilities to account for many different kinds of typographic error (For example, matching Smith to Smiht, Calderone to Caderone or Rankin to Ranklin), which can be applied alone, or on top of the linguistic rules. Common typos (such as those stemming from the erroneous hitting of an adjacent key) can be treated differently from less common ones (such as the insertion of a character at the beginning of a name).

Combining different principles from each of these three key features, transcription variants, phonetic similarities and typographic errors, creates a powerfully precise name matching solution.
