Does anyone know of an online tool for converting Chinese personal names into English (Pinyin romanization)? Chinese names sometimes come up in the Japanese texts I translate, but they are pronounced completely different in Japanese than in Chinese, while in English we pronounce them based on their Chinese pronunciation. If I can get a nice converter, then I can stop nagging my coordinators to ask their Chinese translators to do these.icon_smile.gif

Btw, if you also happen to know a good tool for converting Chinese street addresses into English, that would be helpful, too.

Set your google translator at Chinese to English, insert the Chinese names, you will get the English. Works well for me.
