Tag: Name Matching

Name matching is the process of comparing two names by measuring the similarity between them to determine how likely they are to be a match.

Name matching has been a challenge because names vary in myriad ways and come from many cultures and languages which each have their own customs for nicknames or shortening names.

Rosette solves the name matching challenges with a linguistic, statistics-based system that compares and matches names of people, places, and organizations despite their many variations. Built by linguistics experts, our name matching is unrivaled in its ability to connect entities with high adaptability, precision, and scalability. With fluency across 17 languages and a deep understanding of the linguistic complexities of names, Rosette is the first choice for name matching.
