Does anyone know the best technology platform to use for internal site searches on a Chinese language web site?

Hi Lijin, first of all Welcome to WebmasterWorld!

What kind of architecture is the site currently running on? Apache or IIS; PHP, ASP, Java, etc. If the search function has to integrate with the current site it is often a good idea to choose something from the same architecture family.

I'll see if one of our Microsoft platform experts can jump in to give you some advice on this issue.

I use the Google Custom Search Engine on my Chinese websites. It had the best search results of any of the packages I looked at. Operation doesn't seem to be affected by the recent Google troubles in China.

you might consider using Lucene.

sorry i don't have more to offer.
i was peripherally involved a few years ago with a multilanguage site that used KinoSearch, which is based on Lucene, and i believe that was due to the capability to handle chinese language search.
