What our experts have to say


Accents, capital letters as well as words with no proper meaning (the, that, of, a, etc.) will not be taken into account. The engine uses stemming search (horse equals horses, documentation equals documents and vice versa). Words beginning with a capital letter will be considered as proper nouns.
