Setting up search for non-english languages or searching across many languages is a constant challenge for many organizations due to the differences in encoding, handling of words/meanings, synonyms and display of search results. While most search tools focus on providing an easy way to perform search for english content, they severely lack in terms of easy setup and support for multilingual content including CJK languages.
SearchBlox provides a simple solution that takes care of setting up search for non-english languages and supports 25+ languages out-of-the-box. Each collection is tied to a specific language which enables you to tune the stop words, synonyms and meta data handling without complicated configuration. SearchBlox lets you search across multiple languages at the same time and display them together taking out the complexities of handling encoding.
