International Stop List

When you use the AnyLanguage parameter in all or most of your queries, you might want to use the international stop list. This stop list contains common stop words for all languages, but does not include terms that are stop words in one language, but useful search terms in another language.

For multilingual searching, this stop list ensures that the query includes all useful terms, while still removing all stop words that are never useful terms.

The international.dat stop list is included in the langfiles directory of a default HPE IDOL Server installation. You must configure each of the languages in your configuration file to use this stop list. If you have existing data in HPE IDOL Server, you must also reindex the data.
