Google develops multi-language ECM search appliance

by | Dec 31, 2008

New Google tool allows companies to search for terms in ECM systems in 34 different languagesGoogle has developed a feature that should help companies with workforces comprised of people speaking different languages better search for and read files in enterprise content management systems.

The Google Enterprise Search Appliance, which is still in beta, allows users to translate documents in 34 languages and claims to be able to find a search term regardless of what language it was initially typed in.

The company says the search feature can crawl and index documents in systems like Documentum, SharePoint and FileNet and because it has an open connector framework, users can connect to most other content management systems.

"Before today, when users searched for a topic, the search only returned documents that were in the same language as the query," Google Labs enterprise product manager Cyrus Mistry wrote on the company”s enterprise blog last week. "Cross-Language Enterprise Search instantly translates your Google Search Appliance query from one language to one or more other languages using Google”s best-in-class translation engine."

Companies already using a Google appliance are now able to try the new Cross-Language Enterprise Search for free.ADNFCR-1861-ID-18950975-ADNFCR
