AddSearch for multilingual websites
With our Plus package enabled, AddSearch automatically detects the language of your pages based on meta tags. When your users search, the only results displayed are those with the same language as the page you’re on. Meaning that your users never get confused by seeing results in a different language.
Can I disable language detection
Some sites may want to display all languages together in the search. For example, if most your site is in English but a couple of press releases are in another language, you’ll probably want to display all pages together in the search.
To disable automatic language detection and show the search results in all languages, head to your Settings page in the AddSearch Dashboard.
Determining page’s language
AddSearch uses two methods to determine the language of a page. If you have a multilingual website and are seeing different languages mixed together in your search results, please review that you’re using either of these methods to tell AddSearch the language of the page:
1. Set the language in the HTML tag
xml:lang attribute in the
HTML tag, as follows:
<html lang="es"> <html xml:lang="es">
2. Set the language using a meta tag
content-language meta tag in the HEAD section of your page, as follows:
<meta name="dc.language" content="es" /> <meta http-equiv="content-language" content="es" />
The examples above set the language to Spanish.
