In SharePoint 2016, I have documents in different languages. I set my search languages to Hungarian and English, so I can search in both languages. Strange thing happens after that:

IIf I search for a Hungarian word, with an accent, the search returns no results (or just very few), if the 'Preference for results' is set to English. But if I set it to Hungarian, it returns the desired result. It look like it also lists other variations of the words.

 

Does anybody have an explanation for that?

 

Thank you
