Errors related to other than English languages

Dec 8, 2008 at 1:44 PM
I am compiling a list of issues that come up when Faceted Search used with different locales/regional settings/languages/encoding, etc.
If you have experienced such problem please post your scenario, reproduction steps and environment specs to this discussion.

What languages are installed on the server? What is default language? What is the Facet and Facet Value in your scenario?

This should be troubleshooted in your environment. Let me know if you can setup RDP on your box and have Visual Studio w/ Faceted Search source code configured. We might have time to look at the problem.

I have installed the facet search in a Swedish gui for the search server. It works if I uncheck the cachingbox. Otherwise I get big errormessages that dosent really tell me anything. I sadly dont have the logfiles here but just want to tell you.
The caching works in english enviroment.

I using a MOSS 2007 SP2 English version. French  and  Spain languages are also installed

I compiled a search query and I have got search results in FRENCH as I hope. But, the facet 'LANGUAGE'  returns the language :  CATALAN as  facet value

Could you give me some explanations about the language detection method in  the faceted search

The Language facet works on the metadata field called DETECTEDLANGUAGE. This is a field that the search engine automatically fills in from what language it detects in documents. Bare in mind this is not an exact process so somtimes it detects wrong.

So if you have document that is written in english the field DETECTEDLANGUAGE will  have English as value. But if a document is written in CATALAN the field will have that as valu. Maybe this is not the case but then its just the search enginen that has classified it wrong.

Has nothing with the faceted search to do. Facets are built from metadata in the search index.
