Cover of the book Linguistic Identity Matching


A name can be a valuable tool for investigating fraudsters around the world. Using identity matching techniques, a name can be checked against many types of databases, including those of known criminals, terrorists and other sanctioned parties. However, identity matching can become complex considering the multitude of countries and organizations maintaining these databases; each using their own language’s translations of the name you are attempting to match.

In this book, you will learn about the influences that languages, writing systems and cultural conventions have on personal names, allowing you to choose better name variations to use in your searches. By using the linguistic identity matching approach, you can balance the risk of missing a match with the costs of overmatching.
