Improved handling of Full-width/Half-width characters

  • Searches including Full-with/Half- width characters, e.g Cat/cat,  are now handled identically which makes it easier to search since you no longer need to explicitly search for both variations.

  • This change provides better recall since searching for example cat will also include search results for Cat, and vice versa. 

 

Expanded handling of apostrophes

  • Some people may not know, but there are different types of apostrophes. Most noticeable when copy/pasting text into Meltwater. We have removed the dependency on the type of apostrophe used, and both types are treated equal: curly apostrophes/quotes ( ’ ) or straight apostrophes/quotes ( ' ) or ´

  • Example: When searching for women`s, documents that contain women`s and women's will now be included in search results.
