Possible to Validate Gamut of International Data Types using Security Assist?

Possible to Validate Gamut of International Data Types using Security Assist?


I have about 60 Presenters coming from all over the world. There are Chinese, Taiwanese, Qatari, Saidi, Japanese and etc., and etc. I.e. weird address types, cell phone numbers etc.

I can't be the first to face this issue. Is there in fact a comprehensive set of validation possibilities for such data? On an international basis? And that I could then apply with a series of dynamic drop-down menus that present themselves on an "if-then" basis for different information types? And so I guarantee that it has appropriate form?

US States are for example easy to monitor with a drop-down menu. But unless someone somewhere has created a list of all counties or areal types for the entire world for such a series of dyhnamic dropdown or validations, then I don't see what I can do.

I am at present relying on the fact that the only people who will find my Registration page are those I explicitly give it to over the next 6 weeks or so,
I am also assuming that there is no fully comprehensive way of checking on the "correctness" of this information? So no suitable "pictures" SecurityAssist can use to comprehensively validate for any required format?

I otherwise see no option but to trust people ... ... ... which seems reasonable because if they want me to pay them then they must give me correct information; which seems a good motivation.

I can then also manually supervise the data using DataAssist, and contact Presenters on an individual basis if something looks off.

Can your tools provide me with anything better?
Thank you.

When you are dealing with so many different languages and locations, you really can't validate much other than requiring it to be not blank or maybe a minimum length. Specific validations for zip codes, states, and even phone numbers just has too many variations across countries.
