Korean-Chinese Dictionary of Personal Names

We maintain the world's largest CJK bilingual bidirectional databases of proper nouns. These are used by some of the world's major IT companies for a wide variety of applications, such as:

  • machine translation (MT)
  • information retrieval (IR)
  • morphological analysis (MA)
  • electronic dictionaries (ED)
  • input method editors (IME)
  • named entity recognition (NER)

Our Korean-Chinese database of Korean and non-Korean personal and place names contains over 1,880,000 records, broken down as follows:
