Presented by Christian Moen, Software Engineer, Atilika Inc.
In search, language handling is often key to getting a good search experience. This talk gives an overview of language handling and linguistics functionality in Lucene/Solr and best-practices for using them to handle Western, Asian and multi-language deployments. Pointers and references within the open source and commercial eco-systems for more advanced linguistics and their applications are also discussed.
The presentation is mix of overview and hands-on best-practices the audience can benefit immediately from in their Lucene/Solr deployments. The eco-system part is meant to inspire how more advanced functionality can be developed by means of the available open source technologies within the Apache eco-system (predominantly) while also highlighting some of the commercial options available.
