Name searching and matching algorithms


Actual tools for searching and comparing names and first names work on phonetical or orthographical Levenshtein base or use key words. These tools however are oriented on Western European languages and give issues for other languages, which in actual sociological context becomes more and more a problem. We have indeed more and more clients with African, Asian or Eastern European names.
