MUI Managed metadata vs. Search

Multilingual managed metadata a dream come true? Yes and no, for the end user it is a perfect way to add extra metadata to an item. The value of the managed metadata automatically changes in the language that the user is in.

For example.





For the developers it’s a nightmare, especially when search is involved.




Q: I have an item with a managed metadata “Kalkoen”. When I search for “Kalkoen” will this item be in my search results?


A: The answer is very simple, it depends on what the default language is of your web.

When a user connects to the site, the site will be in de default language of the SPWeb. If the site is Multilanguage the user can change the language through the user menu.




When a user connects or sets a language SharePoint will add or edit the LCID cookie.

Now back to my question. If the default language of the site is Dutch you will find the item if you search for “Kalkoen”. But if you search “La Turquie” you won’t get the item in your search results.


The reason why you can’t find the item is pretty simple, the managed metadata is not saved in the current language you are working in but it will be saved in the webs default language.


E.g. if the default language of the site is French and  you create an item in the Dutch context and you choose “Kalkoen” as managed metadata, it will be saved as “La Turquie”


So when the crawler starts crawling for content, the managed metadata will be indexed according the default language of the site.

Hey timmy

First of all good blog, had to laugh with the turkey example :-)..
If you add "/lists/taxonomyhiddenlist/allitems.aspx" behind your website url you can see what he is saving.. is explains your statement.

Kind regards

[?] manner away from folders, and others have tried to tow the line between the two. Even though SharePoint 2010 has made improvements in the way folders can be used, I do strongly believe that folders have outlived their translation. [?]

Hi Rosemary,Thank you for updating me on missing classmate Richard Wells. You were right that he was not inthe class of 1962. I had recently emailed his brother Dan, and he informed me that Richard hasbeen teaching and living in China the last six years.Regard, Charlene (Demonet) Fisher

Kevin was very special to Elaine and me from the first sesshin we attended 6 or 7 years ago to the most recent a few weeks ago, when he came in during an evening sitting walking slowly with his cane and friends in support. I'll miss his humor and his dedication.

Definitely agree with what you explained. Your explanation was certainly the easiest to understand. Tell you something, I generally get irked when folks discuss issues which they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail correct about the head and explained out everything without complication.
