Publishing Multi-Language Sitecore Items Leads to a Large Amount of Files Being Indexed

Description

When publishing an item that has multiple languages on it, you see that it’s in fact indexed up to 9 times. For example, if you have an item in Danish, English and German versions, the publish will look like this:

  • The Danish language item is indexed in Danish, English and German.
  • The English language item is indexed in Danish, English and German.
  • The German language item is indexed in Danish, English and German.
  • The target item is indexed in Danish, English and German.
