Stop Words.

When you create a new index in dtSearch, ideally the noise (stop) word list should match the language of the documents that you intend to search; alternatively if the documents to be indexed contain multiple languages or you prefer to have no words excluded from the index, you need to change the default English noise word list used by dtSearch.

To change the noise word list, open dtSearch Desktop and from the Options menu select Preferences|Letters and Words; browse to the stop word in the desired language or to the empty file (None.dat), you  will find these in the stop word installation path, which by default is : C:\Program Files\DTSUK\LEP500\Language\Stop

If you need to change the stop word list at any time, you will need to rebuild the index.

Stemming files.

The stemming files are used at search time, there is no need to update the index when the stemming language is changed. Instructions for using the stemming rule files with dtSearch Desktop can be found in the Stemming Selector 4 User Guide.
