This article discusses methods for developing proper name recognition, translation and cross-linguistic matching capabilities for any language or combination of languages in a short amount of time, with relatively minimal work by native speaker informants. Unlike much work on proper name recognition, this work is grounded in knowledge-based rather than stochastic methods, and it extends to multi-lingual and multi-script name processing.
