Practical International Data Management - Personal names in different contexts

Many people use different names, or translated or transliterated version of their names, in different contexts to make communication easier. For example, Catalan Jordi or Llorenç may be know as Jorge and Lorenzo. German Andreas or Dutch Andries might call themselves Andrew. Chinese people in Western environments usually take a Western given name.
