An experimental feature lets Google Search Appliance translate documents in 34 languages. Search engine giant Google is looking to stimulate more international interest in its GSA search device, a rare piece of IT infrastructure hardware Google offers to businesses. The idea is to help Google’s enterprise search gain favor over offerings from Microsoft Fast, Endeca, Autonomy, Vivisimo and other vendors.
Google is providing a Cross-Language Search feature in its Google Search Appliance. The feature instantly translates search queries for internal company documents, sent from users’ PCs to the GSA, in any of 34 languages, Cyrus Mistry, Google Enterprise product manager and Enterprise Labs creator.
