Are you facing the challenge of working with foreign languages like Greek, Russian, Japanese or Chinese without being a native speaker and having the respective input devices at your disposal?
AddressDoctor Character Set Mapping and Transliteration is an invaluable help when working with strings in almost all common character sets. It supports 40 different character sets and can transform five non-Latin writing systems into Latin characters through Transliteration:
AddressDoctor Character Set Mapping and Transliteration is fully Unicode enabled and is the basis for all AddressDoctor products.
Correctly identified address elements are especially important when addresses are to be abbreviated to fit into fields with a maximum field width. The abbreviation rules of the AddressDoctor standardization functionality ensure no important information is lost.
During address validation the structured address elements are compared to postal reference data. This step checks if the individual elements exist and if the combination is correct. Missing elements are supplied, typos eliminated and ambiguities resolved.
The AddressDoctor Validation Engine was developed to deliver optimal results and reduce manual interaction. It also keeps false corrections (the change of an almost correct address to an incorrect one) to an absolute minimum.
In many cases it isn't possible to completely verify addresses. For these cases AddressDoctor offers a unique deliverability assessment that rates addresses based on elements present. Every address receives a deliverability assessment.
Once addresses are verified and corrected, AddressDoctor formats them according to the postal rules of each country.
For more information on how to format international addresses, please visit the Address Formats section on our website.
Once your address database was succesfuly verified and corrected by the automated address check of AddressDoctor's Software Library, you can enrich your addresses using Geocoding or Consumer Segmentation. Both enrichment options are fully integrated into the Software Library. For more information on our address enrichment offering, please go to Address Plus.
