I would like to implement Endeca for Polish customer but unfortunatelly I ve found that it doesnt support other languages then English and few others.
Its written that :
"Oracle Endeca Information Discovery (EID) has been optimized to support ingest,display,fullsearch,navigation and text enrichment for the English language."
How can I understand that ? Does it mean that when I want to use Endeca for other languages I cant get ingest,display,fullsearch,navigation and text enrichment ?
If there is any workaround ? When other languages will be supported ? Then ofcourse does it make sense to use Endeca for the languages that are not supported ?
Endeca supports most languages, but there are a few limitations. For Polish, the limitations (from memory) are:
1) No out-of-the-box stemming support - you may wish to use http://snowball.tartarus.org/ to generate a stemming file
2) No phonetic spell correction, only edit-distance-based - you need to use espell rather than the default aspell for spell-correction
I think all other features (stop words, thesaurus, word break analysis, did-you-mean, navigation, etc.) work the same.
You can find out more in the Using Internationalized Data section in the Advanced Developer's Guide here:
If you need to support English and Polish for the same data set, this section is also particularly useful as you can use language identifiers on a per-record and per-query basis.
