Known issues

Languages and Localization

GendRE works with all international names (with very few exceptions). To help with translation/localization of the user interface (~300 words), please visit https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/gendre-gender-app/ It helps if you can run the software once, to see the main messages in context. GendRE is currently available in: English, Arabic, Portuguese, Russian, Italian, French, German, Hebrew, Romanian, Hindi. We have issues with Bengali and Panjabi.

Gender API

GenderApp uses the GendreAPI for name gender prediction. This is a free Application Programming Interface (API) to predict the gender of a personal name on a -1 (Male) to +1 (Female) scale, for a given geography/locale. You can test it directly from your web browser, entering this kind URL: http://api.onomatic.com/onomastics/api/gendre/John/Smith/us returns -0.99 (ie. Male)
