    V6 is now old. In case you didn't notice this post was started 2 years ago.

    You can add your own language translations from the languages configuration window.

      Does that mean that the stemming function does not work for Chinese as well?

        The whole concept of Chinese language stemming doesn't really make sense (as far as I know).

          There are no plurals or past and present tense in Chinese. And these are the main issues that stemming addresses.

            I would like to know which the 16 languages are that stemming works for. Couldn't find it in the article. I think it's a great feature

                No polish? Anyone knows when they add polish language?

                    We had briefly investigated this. The problem with Polish is that you cannot have a stemming method that is entirely algorithm based -- unlike all of the above mentioned (and already implemented) languages.

                    Instead, Polish would require a dictionary or lookup table. So extra data would be needed for the effectiveness of the stemming. This would alter the requirements of the search script (e.g. number of files, space requirements, etc.) and isn't something we can add easily without bigger changes.
