Episerver Find and short forms / conjugation


I have an index that's only in Swedish. If I search for the name "Tomas" Episerver Find also searches for "tom", which I guess is because it's a short form of Tomas in english? However, in swedish "tom" is another word and it's quite weird to get results for "tom" when searching for "tomas".

Is there a way to control this behaviour? I have tried setting the language in the query without luck.

I think this is a result of stemming. Read this article:

Maybe you should contact Episerver support and ask that they add my name (Tomas) to the list of words excluded from the Swedish (and Norwegian) stemming.

You may also turn off stemming entirely, specifying SearchLanguage = Language.None, like this:

Thanks Tomas. I've contacted support and they can reproduce and will probably add 'tomas' to the exclusion list.
