The Search application provides globalization support by using different dictionaries for different languages. Each dictionary file must be enabled in the Search configuration file before indexing. By default, only the English language dictionary is enabled during installation.
Every language has its own specified dictionary file. Dictionaries that are marked as enabled in the Search configuration file are loaded into memory at server start time when the Search application is started.
Use administrative commands to enable the dictionaries that you want to use with Search.
Listing enabled dictionaries
Use the listDictionaries command to check which dictionaries are currently enabled for use with Search.
Setting the default dictionary
Use administrative commands to set the default dictionary used for Search query strings.
If your organization no longer operates in specific geographies, you can streamline the operation of the Search application by disabling any dictionaries that are no longer needed.
