Hi Chris, thanks for commenting. I don't think there is a need for "seeing a name in the user preferred format". You get me wrong here, it's not my preference to see his and other Asian names being displayed like this.
It's how the East Asian people have named themselves for hundreds of years and I think if WikiTree is a true global project and not one driven by Americans and their preferred needs then we should recognize this. WikiTree will never become a global family tree with it's current emphasis on Americans and the lack of recognizing that actually most people in the world have and are living outside of the US.
Like I commented on Helmut's comment a simple check box that enables to display the name in East Asian reverse name order is all we need.
It's still interesting to see you mentioning the "a larger internationalization conversion" project. Will tackle this in a different question to stay on topic.
