Text Search Languages

The text index and the $text operator may be used with the following languages, and accepts either the two-letter ISO 639-1 language code or the long form of the language name:

Language Name ISO 639-1 (Two letter codes)
danish da
dutch nl
english en
finnish fi
french fr
german de
hungarian hu
italian it
norwegian nb
portuguese pt
romanian ro
russian ru
spanish es
swedish sv
turkish tr


If you specify a language value of "none", then the text search uses simple tokenization with no list of stop words and no stemming.
