Language Support

TidWiT supports multi-language both for the interface and search.

Does TidWiT support multi-language?

Yes, TidWiT features multi-language support both for the interface as well as the content search.


Which languages does TidWiT currently support?

TidWiT currently supports English, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Arabic, and Japanese. Traditional and simplified Chinese are expected.


Can the end user choose their own language interface or does it need to be standardized across the organization?

Each end-user could choose the language interface of their choice in Manage My Profile or from language drop down on the homepage of the instance.


What is the difference between interface language and search language?

Quite simply, TidWiT provides the flexibility for a user who prefers their interface to be in a certain language, say in German, to still be able to search for content in another language, say in English.


Is content search language-specific?

Yes, TidWiT searches employ an algorithm, which uses grammar, sentence structure, logic, and full text indexing methods—all of which are language specific.


Can TidWiT filter content searches by a language different from that of the interface?

Yes, while the default language filter for content searches is the same language as the user’s interface language, content searches can still be filtered by another language independently from the interface language. To choose to do a content search in a different language, the user simply chooses the desired search language from a drop-down in Advanced Search.


Would a piece of content that is classified, say in the French language, show up in an English search?

By default, searches of content will filter only the content in the user’s language interface. However, the end-user could choose to search for content in another language through the Advanced Search feature to show search results of content in other languages.
