Use multiple stemming analyzers for multilingual forums


Well-known member
The Enhanced Search setup seems to dictate a single language setup. Yet, it would be very helpful to cater to websites that have multilingual setups. i.e. provide stemming analyzers for multiple languages.

I don't believe ES is really particularly setup to handle this, but how would you know what stemmer to use for content or for the searching being performed?

As xenforo does not allow for the same node to have content in different languages, most websites have setup categories and child nodes dedicated to a language. i.e.
- English category
- - English node 1
- - English node 1
- - English node 3
- German Category
- - German node 1
- - German node 2
- - German node 3

If we would be able to define a node language then that would also define what stemming language to use for content in those nodes.
