Serbian Search Update[edit]

An important update to search is coming soon to wiki projects in Serbian. We will be deploying new language processing that will improve search on Serbian wikis, including:

  • Transliteration, so that searching for either of астрономија or astronomija will find the other.
  • Stemming, which links related forms of a word, so that searching for астрономија, астрономије, астрономији, or астрономију will find the others.
  • Better handling of diacritics, particularly those used as a guide to pronunciation, so that searching for астроно̀мија or астрономија will find the other. Important Serbian characters (đ, ž, ć, č, and š) will be unchanged.
  • You can still search for exact words by using quotes, so that "астрономија" will not match astronomija, астрономије, or астроно̀мија.
