Abstract
A brief overview of language-specific processing in search—tokenization, normalization, stemming, and stop words—using primarily English and Irish as examples, with additional examples from other languages that offer unique challenges—segmentation, transliteration, complex orthography, and a lack of software support—such as Chinese, Serbian, Khmer, and Mirandese.
What will attendees take away from this session?
Attendees will have a better understanding of the language-specific processing that goes into search, hopefully with an eye towards collaboration with the WMF Search Platform Team to improve search in the languages they use.
