Supported Languages

Coveo can index content written in 57 languages. Coveo Machine Learning (Coveo ML) features and Coveo JavaScript Search Framework user interfaces also support a wide array of languages.

  • Coveo can index other language content as long as:

    • The language uses spaces to separate words.

    • The item encodes characters in Unicode.

    For languages meeting these requirements, most language features are supported, except language detection and stemming.

  • Since result ranking is partially based on summarization and key-concept extraction techniques, English, French, German, and Spanish queries return the most relevant results consistently.

The following sections present the features supported by each language:
