Search Result not match when using Chinese Keyword RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using WSS3.0 SP2 with Search Server Express (Eng), the database server is SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. I've tried to enter some Chinese keyboard, the result doesn't return from keyboard. E.g. I've enter "日期", the search result only return "日" or "期" but never return the result of "日期". Is there any hotfix to fix the problem?

  • First of all, this is a forum for FAST for SharePoint, not Search Server.

    I'm not sure how the word breaker works in Search Server (or Express), but that's most likely the issue. FAST on the other hand have better word breaker capabilities for Chinese, and you can also enter custom dictionaries for your word breaking.

    So I don't think there is a hotfix for your probel. Advanced Chinese linguistics is just not supported in the lower end products.

  • When search Chinese word in Windows 7 home edition (US), I can search Chinese Word as well, I'm not sure it is a Advanced Chinese Linguistics and Low End Product issue. May be MS should pay more afford on SQL Searching...
