Retrieving geographical name written in different scripts
A round-trip name transliteration system is not easy to accomplish, the name's inherent orthographic characteristics are totally lost when exported to another language. This is a major challenge for information retrieval systems utilized in CLIR applications.

No matter how bad the changes distorted the original orthography our system will reproduce the original Arabic name thus improving the accuracy of name searching, transliteration, and the quality of identity verification initiatives by providing high accuracy ranked results, based on the linguistic, phonetic, and specific cultural variation patterns of Arabic names.

It uses a database of rules and information related to the specific culture of a set of names and utilizes these rules to perform the best reverse-transcription.

Based on an industry-leading technology, it helps you recognize multilingual geographical names written in native language script, screen potential threats, and perform background checks across multiple geographies and cultures. The system regenerates the name and optionally reproduces native script in a ranked output.
