Customizing IR Expert

IR Expert already supports English, German, Chinese, Japanese, and Korean languages without customization. However, you can configure IR Expert to perform efficiently in Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese or any other language with the use of stop words, stem, and suffix dictionaries by using these files:

  • The stop word file: [ir_languagefiles_path]<language>.stp
  • The stem dictionary: [ir_languagefiles_path]language.STM
  • The suffix file: [ir_languagefiles_path]language.SUF

Note IR search is not supported for the Arabic and Hebrew languages.

For Chinese, Japanese, or Korean, see Chinese, Japanese, and Korean language analyzer.
