SharePoint 2013
 

Applies to: SharePoint Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2014-01-24

Summary: Learn which linguistic features search by default uses, and for which languages.

SharePoint products use several linguistic features to help improve search relevance.

The following table shows the languages that SharePoint 2013 by default supports for each linguistic feature search uses. The support of these languages doesn't depend on any installed language packs.

NoteNote:
For dynamic spelling correction to work, you should have at least several thousand medium-sized documents.
People search uses fuzzy name matching. Fuzzy name matching includes phonetic matching of names, and can't be disabled.
Stemming for Norwegian Nynorsk is done with the Norwegian Bokmål stemmer.
Reductive stemming is used for some languages, and can't be disabled. These languages are Arabic, Estonian, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Slovak, and Turkish.
