Configuring dictionaries for Search

The Search application provides globalization support by using different dictionaries for different languages. Each dictionary file must be enabled in the Search configuration file before indexing. By default, only the English language dictionary is enabled during installation.

Every language has its own specified dictionary file. Dictionaries that are marked as enabled in the Search configuration file are loaded into memory at server start time when the Search application is started.
Important: For non-English deployments, enabling multilingual support for Search is a mandatory post-installation step that needs to be performed before you start your HCL Connections Search server for the first time. Without multiple dictionary support, for languages other than English, Search will only return results where there is an exact match between the search term and content term. Enabling multiple dictionaries ensures better quality search results when your user base is multilingual.
