Transacting across borders is never simple. For multinational organizations, traversing languages, alphabets, and cultures are ongoing challenges. This is especially true when it comes to onboarding customers from China. On top of KYC and AML regulations, the Chinese written alphabet is challenging to process for identity verification against the Latin alphabet. Fortunately, this problem has spurred innovation. GDC’s new Intelligent Name Translation Engine (INTE) leverages artificial intelligence, big data, research, and feedback loops to solve the problem of traditional character to Latin name translation.

Last week, we partnered with Global Data Consortium on an insightful webinar, that tackled challenges in translation and transacting across borders. In case you’ve been on one-too-many conference calls from your newfound home office and missed the session, we have your back. Take a listen now and gain unmissable insights on current challenges and new solutions to this problem.
