Selecting a language

Acquia Search customizations are available only for Cloud Platform Enterprise, Site Factory, and legacy Enterprise subscriptions.

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

Languages other than the schema’s language will produce lower-quality search results because partial words, plurals, and other variations may not index as expected. You can still search in most languages, but the search results won’t 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 Cloud Platform with the Owner or Administrator role.

  2. Select the application you want to work with, and then in the left menu, click Acquia Search.

    Select Acquia Search in the UI

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

    Edit your settings using the search edit icon

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

  5. Click Save.
