Determine: a list of the most likely converted name in Pinyin, and a probability for each returned converted name.
What is the translation of a Chinese name in Pinyin
A Chinese name written in Mandarin translated into Pinyin is the conversion of this name in English (written in Latin alphabet).
Pinyin is the official romanization system for Standard Mandarin Chinese. It is used to depict Mandarin logograms with the Latin alphabet, used by languages such as English.
Standard Mandarin Chinese is the official language of China and a major language in Singapore and Taiwan. It is also one of the six official languages of the the United Nations. It uses a logographic system called Hanzi that is more commonly know as Chinese characters.
For example, the translation of the full name written in Mandarin 赵丽颖 returned Liying as a translated first name and Zhao as a translated last name.
Convert to Mandarina Chinese first name, last name or full name
Transcribe a Chinese first name and/or surname, written in Latin alphabets (Pinyin) into Standard Mandarin Chinese. Indicate the most likely gender to improve the accuracy of the transcription.
Mandarin name transcription will only work with first and last names identified as Chinese.
Determine: the success status of the match: 'Match' or 'Mismatch', and scored the names transcription.
Identify the genderbased on a Chinese first name, last name or full name
Analyzes a Chinese first name and optional surname, or an unsplit Chinese full name, in standard Mandarin Chinese or in Latin alphabet (Pinyin), to identify the most likely gender with higher accuracy. If the first name and surname are clearly identifiable, the Genderize Chinese Name feature (FIRST & LAST NAME) will be slightly more accurate.
The Genderize Chinese Full Name feature will only work with Chinese full names written in standard Mandarin Chinese.
Determine: the most likely gender with a calibrated probability for the returned gender.
What is the gender of a Chinese name
Gender is defined as a set of characteristics considered to relate to femininity and masculinity. Depending on some contexts, this may include social structures based on gender identity and sex. Most cultures use a gender binary, in which gender is divided into two categories: boys/men/male and girls/women/female.
The gender estimated from a name is not absolute, so we indicate the probability that the identified gender is correct. Adding a surname and/or country of residence significantly increases accuracy. If the probability of the returned gender is between 45% and 55%, the name can be interpreted as gender neutral.
For example, the Chinese full name written in standard Mandarin Chinese 谢晓亮 is identified as a male name with a probability of 53.29% and can therefore be considered a unisex.
Separate a first name and last namebased on an unsplit Chinese full name
Separate an unsplit Chinese full name, written in standard Mandarin Chinese or in Latin alphabet (Pinyin), into a first name and surname structure, with higher accuracy.
What is the first and last name structure of a Chinese full name
A full name is the set of names by which a person is known. It is often composed of two elements: a first name (given name) and a last name (surname). It can sometimes include middle names. The order of the first name and the last name differs according to the different regions of the world and the alphabets.
A first name is the part of a personal name that identifies a person and differentiates them from other members of a group. It is also called a given name. The first name may also include middles names.
A last name is the part of a personal name that usually indicates a person's family, tribe or community. It is also called surname or family name.
For example, for the unsplit Chinese name in standard Mandarin Chinese 谢晓亮, the first name is 晓亮 and 谢 the last name.
