Months And Days Examples



When you use this file with SharePoint, you will be able to search for a month in any of over 20 languages* and will find documents referring to that month in any of those languages. Months with the same spelling for different languages have not been included because duplicates are not allowed in Sharepoint Thesaurus files.



A problem to be aware of is that if you are searching for month 11, November in English, documents that are returned containing listopad will be correct for Polish, Czech, and archaic Slovene (the Cyrillic equivalent is лістапада in Belarusian, листопаді in Ukrainian) but in Croatian be aware that listopad is the month of October.


The word listopad must only occur once in the thesaurus file, either October or November as required. The example file has listopad in November.


A similar problem exists with month 12 - December, the word prosinec (Czech) or prosinac (Croatian) refers to December, but prosinec may be found referring to the month of January in some archaic Slovene documents.  


Finally note the similar words sierpień (Polish) and srpen (Czech) is month 8 – August, but srpanj is July in Croatian and veliki srpan (“large sickle”) is August and mali srpan (“small sickle”) is July in archaic Slovene.










Days of the week in over 20 languages**.  The days are listed in accordance with international standard ISO 8601 with Monday as the first day of the week, however many countries such as the USA still have their calendars refer to Sunday as the first day of the week.
