The default HPE IDOL Server configuration file uses generic transliteration. HPE recommends that you use generic transliteration because it is the best way to ensure that cross-lingual search can happen.
Generic transliteration performs transliteration as described in the following table.
|Language or character type||Transliteration|
|Symbols||All dashes and hyphens to a hyphen character.|
|Latin||Accented characters to non-accented characters|
|Spanish||Accented vowels áéíóúü to non-accented vowels|
|Portuguese||Accented vowels àáâãçéêíòóôõúü to non-accented vowels|
|Greek||Accented Greek characters to non-accented characters|
|Cyrillic (including Serbian extensions)||All characters mapped to A–Z|
|Arabic||Arabic character normalization|
Half width katakana to full width katakana
Full width 0–9, A–Z, a–z to single byte 0–9, A–Z, a–z
|Chinese||Full width 0–9, A–Z, a–z to single byte 0–9, A–Z, a–z|
For all other languages, transliteration does not apply, except for hyphen normalization.
Languages with a sentence-breaking library might be transliterated as part of the sentence-breaking process.
When you set
True, it applies to all languages, unless you specifically disable transliteration for a language.
You can disable transliteration for an individual language by setting the
Transliteration parameter to
False in the individual language configuration section. This option completely disables transliteration for that language.
