Accuity Introduces Chinese Language Functionality for Online Compliance

Subscribe to our newsletter

Accuity, a provider of global payment routing data, AML screening software, and services, today unveiled Chinese language functionality for its web-based look-up tool, Online Compliance, powered by WorldCompliance.

A versatile component of Accuity’s Compliance Solutions, Online Compliance allows users to identify and research sanctioned entities, Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs) and other high-risk individuals and organisations. The tool details information such as: name, aliases, date of birth, place of birth, photographs, positions, family members, associates and company holdings. Entities are notated with precise source links to facilitate Know Your Customer practices and enable further verification.

Online Compliance’s easy-to-navigate user interface can be rendered in a variety of language options, including English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Swedish and Russian — with this latest release, Simplified Chinese is now available. When a user selects a preferred language the labels, buttons and entry category information of the Online Compliance interface appear in that language. Profile data for individual entities can also be displayed in the user’s preferred language using Online Compliance’s translation feature. Adding the Chinese language to the interface display and translation options complements Online Compliance’s ability to conduct searches entered in Chinese characters. The combination of these features makes Online Compliance a solid solution for Chinese institutions.

“We are very pleased to introduce Chinese language functionality in our PEP and enhanced due diligence look-up tool,” said Accuity’s Malcolm Taylor, managing director, EMEA and Asia Pacific. “We know that many of our current and prospective clients in China will appreciate being able to navigate Online Compliance in Chinese in order to more easily access critical information that will enable them to mitigate risk in their businesses.”
