Multilanguage Support for Hong Kong Addresses

Multilanguage Support for Hong Kong Addresses

You can configure Address Verification to return valid Hong Kong addresses in Chinese or in English. The default language is Chinese.
To set the preferred language, configure the
PreferredLanguage
attribute of the
Result
element in
Parameters.xml
.
The following table describes the
PreferredLanguage
values that you can set for Hong Kong address data:
Option
Description
DATABASE
Default value. Returns all address information in Chinese.
ENGLISH
Returns all address information in English.
ALTERNATIVE_1
Returns all address information in the database language.
ALTERNATIVE_2
Returns all address information in English.
ALTERNATIVE_3
Returns all address information in the database language.
PRESERVE_INPUT
Returns the address information in the input language.
If
Address Verification
cannot return an element in the input language, it returns the element in the database language.
Consider the following rules and guidelines when you select the preferred language:
  • To return the address in the Chinese language, select DATABASE, ALTERNATIVE_1, or ALTERNATIVE_3.
    To return the address in a Chinese character set, set the PreferredScript parameter to DATABASE.
  • To return the address in the English language, select ALTERNATIVE_2 or ENGLISH.
    To return the address in a Latin or ASCII character set, set the PreferredScript parameter to a LATIN or ASCII value.
  • The language of the input data can affect the operation of the PRESERVE_INPUT option on a Hong Kong address. Address Verification identifies the input language as English when the input data uses 7-bit ASCII characters and includes an English-language descriptor.
