Linguistic Coverage
There are thousands of languages spoken world-wide, ranging from the pervasive English language to more localised dialects spoken only in small areas of the world, with many widely spoken languages in between. Few identity matching processes can afford to ignore the wide-ranging influencing that language diversity has on global naming practices.
Linguistic Search Solutions have brought together a dedicated team of computational linguists to determine the most efficient and accurate way to match names from key languages and scripts from around the world. Languages and language groups currently supported include: English, French, German, Scandinavian, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian and other Slavic languages, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Japanese, Korean, Malay / Indonesian, Thai, various languages of India, Persian, Arabic, Hebrew, Amharic, Hausa and Swahili.
Through our dedicated study of these languages, we have enabled Traphoty® to account for all major transcription variants and phonetic similarities.
