GEDCOMpare ignores alternative names

+7 votes

This is what I tested. I created a profile with persian/arabic letters. I exported it as GETCOM. In Gramps, I edited it to also have an alternate name card in latin. I imported it back with GETCOMpare. The results:

- GETCOMpare did not match the imported record with the original record even though both first and last name still were the same

-GETCOMpare completely ignored the name in latin, did not list it in the comparison, as if the addition never existed.

This was a test to see how wikitree is currently dealing with alternate names. It seems it is just not. For more info on this issue please see:
