Thank you for considering Hungarian. You could
detect Hungarians by
looking for donations in Hungarian Forints
Note that not all people who live in Hungary have Hungarian names, and
not all Hungarians live in Hungary.
As there are no such data released (you can't filter donations by currency,
or even better currency+location) so I'm just guessing that those donating
in forints are mostly (~100%) Hungarians, while there is no easy way to find
the Hungarians among those not donating in forints.
I didn't want to elaborate on this in my previous mail, but as long as the
surname - first name order is not considered wrong, strange or out of place
in the context of English, and possibly other languages, than using this
order would be a win - win (it would be still acceptable on the
English/other interfaces, and on the Hungarian interface it would be
However, most Hungarians themselves use the Western order to name themselves
in English (and I guess in most foreign languages and contexts) so the
Western order would be correct on every interface language (except possibly
in those countries that use the non-Western order) except Hungarian (but I
dare say that people don't/wouldn't mind it, as they understand that the
context is mostly English [website of an American foundation, even the
currencies look 'foreign']). In conclusion, I would let the Hungarians'
name's rest for this year :).
Unfortunately we get the name already divided up from PayPal and are
stuck either guessing or making an unattractive
'Surname, Given' display
which looks bad for everyone. :(
You have a box for comments, that is independent from the PayPal people.
Maybe a solution would be to have 3 options instead of two at the privacy
checkbox: Display my name [default], Anonymous donation, Display a custom
name [this could work possibly for donating in someone other's name, if
that's not a privacy concern].
