Question about Name Input (Chinese)

Hi I am a membership clerk from Chinese Ward.
I have a question, all the names in MLS is PinYin, Not Chinese Character.

As I see on Wiki:
"A membership record must be accurate and complete if it is to be of the greatest value to priesthood leaders. "

Normally for Chinese people, it formats:
Like Me: 董文超/DONG WENCHAO/BENNY
Chinese Character/PinYin/English Name

Can I update Chinese Character in MLS with PinYin together?
Will this be a problem for output in the future reports?
Because we won't know the Chinese Character by just looking at the PinYin.
I don't feel respect when I call/write someone's name if I dont know that person's name.

Is it a standard that we have to input as English Letters?

Thanks.

Regards,
Benny

I'd suggest calling your Area Office for MLS Support. I'm not sure if anyone here would have an answer that' applicable to your area.
