ReD Launches Multi-Lingual Fraud Prevention Tool

The adoption of Multi-Byte / Double Byte characters by Retail Decisions (ReD) is significant news for online merchants particularly in Asia, as Japanese, Chinese and Korean are now available language options.

London, June 14th 2011- Retail Decisions’ world-leading real-time fraud detection service for e-commerce, ReD Shield, now supports virtually every language, after being upgraded to accept multi-byte and double byte characters.

The adoption of Multi-Byte / Double Byte characters by Retail Decisions (ReD) is significant news for online merchants particularly in Asia, as Japanese, Chinese and Korean are now available language options.

More than half of all web pages use multi-byte / double byte, and it is the main character encoding used internationally online. Enabling multi-byte / double byte internet communication is a hugely important tool in global e-commerce, particularly for businesses looking to trade in regions using Oriental languages. Whereas most non-Asian and Western European languages require less than two bytes per character, Oriental languages usually require three bytes.

This new move further strengthens ReD’s well-established position in the Far East and Asia, where the company has aggressively expanded; being one of the first fraud prevention providers to enter the region.

In the last few years ReD has won over 60 clients in China, Singapore and Japan.

Already an international leader, ReD Shield is now linguistically universal and able to format and process transactions in local language wherever in the world retailers and financial institutions might be.
