PreferredScript

PreferredScript

Informatica Address Verification can return addresses from many countries in more than one script. When necessary, Address Verification can transliterate the address into the Latin scripts that you specify and can add the appropriate Latin characters for the address output. Use the PreferredScript property to specify a preferred script. Find the property under
Parameters
CountrySets
Standardizations
in the
AVJob.schema.json
file.
The PreferredScript property supports the following options:
  • Script. Specifies the policy that Address Verification uses to select the script for an output address.
  • TransliterationType. Specifies the transliteration standard that Address Verification uses to transliterate the results into Latin when multiple Latin standards are available.
  • LimitLatinCharacters. Specifies the depth of the Latin character set that Address Verification can use in an output address.
By default, Address Verification returns the addresses in the primary native script that the country uses for the addresses.

PreferredScript Process Flow

The process includes the following steps:
  1. In the Script option, review or update the script policy for the output data.
  2. If you select a Latin script, specify a transliteration type to apply to the output.
  3. To further define the output, for example to omit special characters that a character set does not support, set the LimitLatinCharacters option.

Script

You can set one of the following values:
NativePrimary
Returns the address in the primary native script that the country uses for the addresses. NativePrimary is the default value.
NativeAlternative1
Returns the address in the alternative script that the country uses.
Latin
Transliterates the address into a Latin script.
You can use the options TransliterationType and LimitLatinCharacters only when you request an output in a Latin script.
Preserve
Returns the address in the same script as the input address.

TransliterationType

You can set one of the following values:
Default
Transliterates the address into a default transliteration type. Default is the default value.
Alternative1
Transliterates the address into an alternative transliteration type if the alternative is available for the address.

LimitLatinCharacters

You can set one of the following values:
NoLimit
Returns the transliterated output in full. NoLimit is the default value.
Latin1
Limits the Latin characters to the Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1) character set. For example, replaces the following characters with Latin-1 characters:
Input
Output (Latin-1)
ä
ä
á
á
à
à
a
ā
a
ASCIISimplified
Changes non-ASCII Latin characters to characters in the ASCII character set. Uses basic conversion, for example ö to o.
ASCIIExpanding
Changes non-ASCII Latin characters to characters in the ASCII character set. Uses extended conversion, for example ö to oe.
Verify that your database supports the characters that the transliteration can return. For example, a database that supports ASCII characters only will not store all Latin characters.
