Thanks for those links.

In fact I think most of us are proud of our name and would consider as an agression if somebody decided that your name is not as you know it is, and change it just because somewhere some rules have decided that your  family name must be your given name, and your given name your family name...

I have a hard time believing that any actor cares how we list their name in Profiler. 
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

I think sugar Joe means we should not use the CLT just to reverse the name.  In other words, if she is always credited as 'Zhang Ziyi', we enter her as 'Zhang/ /Ziyi'.  We do not create 'Ziyi/ /Zhang (Zhang Ziyi).


That is exactly what I meant. Thank you.

Because we follow the film credits, Battling, now that may be helpful for establishing a Common/Credited As setup, but otherwise no.

You'll have to exclude the titles credited in asian character sets, since there is no proven transcription to our latin character set.

For 2046 the asian cast and crew is credited with chinese letters. Hence the western characters are credited latin...
