Index Words in Another Language
3 years, 11 months ago #9493
On our site, we have several digital newspapers being indexed, and many of the words and names that users will want to search are currently not being found in the results. For instance, the surname Pribanic will not yield any results, despite the newspapers being properly indexed and the word Pribanic being in the content.
Is there a way for us to configure WPSOLR to index words in multiple languages at once (i.e. Serbian [Latin Alphabet] and English)? Basically, we need people to be able to find anything they search for, including words that may not be recognized in English, like those surnames.
The site is https://www.snfpaper.org if you would like to take a look.

You will need to register for an account on the site in order to view the pdfs since they are protected. If you prefer, I could create the account for you on this end.3 years, 11 months ago #9509
Thanks. I created an account.
With https://www.snfpaper.org/?s=Pribanic, I get only one result, but for another pdf file: https://www.snfpaper.org/wp-content/uploads/_pda/2018/12/2014-06-04.pdf. But this pdf does not seem to contain “Pribanic” (tested with Ctrl-F).
So: the pdf with “Pribanic” (https://www.snfpaper.org/wp-content/uploads/_pda/2018/10/2017-08-16.pdf) is not found, and the pdf without “Pribanic” (https://www.snfpaper.org/wp-content/uploads/_pda/2018/12/2014-06-04.pdf) is found.
Can you give my account access to your WP admin, so I can have a quick check?
