Hello very happy with Algolia and have been using it for lots of my projects lately.
Most of my projects use Japanese text and I was wondering how you handle two byte Japanese text.
There is an area called Ebisu 恵比寿 near my work and I often search with it.
I think Algolia behaves as below as I enter the text
a) 恵 -> any text that has 恵
b) 恵比 -> any text that has 恵比 or 恵
c) 恵比寿 -> any text that has 恵比寿 or 恵比 or 恵
- Is this above assumption correct?
- for c) Text contains 恵比寿 has higher scoring than text which has 恵
only then text with 恵比寿 will show up higher in search result?
I couldn’t find much about searching on Asian two-byte languages. Man y Asian languages including Chinese or Japanese are two bytes and don’ t have spaces between words.
If you can guide me anything about this it will be very much appreciated.
