Name Translation

Overview

Your data in the form you need it

Names are an essential source of information, but most names in the world are not written in English, making them all but impossible to work with for Anglocentric corporations and governments. These organizations must quickly and accurately translate their names, often at a very large scale.

Rosette translates names using its knowledge of language-specific naming conventions. Our tools are trained to recognize when to transliterate a name based on spelling or when to translate the meaning, such as a title.

Rosette name translation can quickly process millions of names from foreign languages to produce highly accurate, standardized English translations using industry-leading technologies, such as linguistic algorithms and statistical modeling. Rosette also supports name translation between Chinese, Japanese and Korean.

How It Works

Spelling vs. Meaning

Words in a name can be translated according to their spelling or their meaning. Consider the following example:

name-translation

Notice the title, “King” and it’s placement. Further, in any given language, a name may be native or transliterated from another language. Consider هاني الملقي‎‎ (Hani Al-Mulki), whose name is native to Arabic, and جورج دبليو بوش (George W. Bush) whose name is not.

Rosette name translation at work

  • Generate “conventional spellings” of frequently appearing foreign names
  • Transliterate “unrecognized” names, i.e. those not appearing in any known catalog of foreign names
  • Follow complex transliteration standards, such as the IC or U.S. Board on Geographic Names for translating from non-Latin scripts to English
  • Automatically resolve name spelling ambiguities in the source language, such as partial vocalization of Arabic, or word segmentation in Chinese
