Preferred Script

Preferred Script

Determines the character set that the Address Validator transformation uses for output data.
The following table describes the options on the property:
Option
Description
ASCII (Simplified)
Returns an address in ASCII characters.
ASCII (Extended)
Returns an address in ASCII characters and expands any special character in an address. For example, Ö transliterates to OE.
Database
Returns an address in the character set that the address reference data uses for the default language.
Database is the default value.
Latin
Returns an address in the Latin character set.
Latin (Alt)
Returns an address in an alternative Latin character set.
For example, specify Latin to return a South Korea address in the Revised Romanization transliteration. Specify Latin (Alt) to return a South Korea address in the older, ISO/TR 11941 transliteration.
Postal Admin
Returns an address in the script that the postal service local to the address prefers.
Postal Admin (Alt)
Returns an address in a script that the postal service local to the address approves as an alternative script.
Preserve Input
Returns address data in the character set that the input address uses.
The transformation can process a data source that contains data in multiple languages and character sets. The transformation converts all input data to the Unicode UCS-2 character set and processes the data in the UCS-2 format. After the transformation processes the data, it converts the data in each address record to the character set that you specify in the property. The process is called transliteration.
Transliteration can use the numeric representations of each character in a character set when it converts characters for processing. Transliteration can also convert characters phonetically when there is no equivalent numeric representation of a character. If the Address Validator transformation cannot map a character to UCS-2, it converts the character to a space.
If you update the preferred language or the preferred script on the transformation, verify that the language and the character code that you select are compatible.
