Selecting a language

Acquia Search can index websites in most languages, but Acquia Search passes content through a language-specific stemmer during indexing, depending on the search schema you have set for your website. Acquia Search offers search schemas for the following languages:

  • English
  • Dutch
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish

This means languages other than the schema's language are likely to produce lower-quality search results because partial words, plurals, and other variations may not be correctly indexed. You can still search in most languages, but the search results will not be as good as they would be with a language-specific schema.

To select a language-specific schema, complete the following steps:

  1. Sign in to the Acquia Cloud interface with the Owner or Administrator role.
  2. Select the application that you want to work with, and then in the left menu, click Acquia Search.

    Select Acquia Search

  3. To edit your settings, click the Edit icon in the upper right corner.

    Edit settings

  4. In the Acquia Search configuration set list, click the version that matches your Drupal version and preferred language. For example, for Dutch, click apachesolr 7.x-1.0+, Optimized for Dutch.

    Select a language

  5. Click Save.

If your website is in a language other than English, Dutch, French, German, or Spanish, contact Acquia Support to determine whether a search schema specific to that language can be made available for you.
