“Automatic indexing was key for us. We had great success using dtSearch to hyperlink search results in a dozen or so European languages. dtSearch's flexibility with regard to multilingual support worked great.”
The Court of Justice of the European Communities was set up in 1952 under the Treaty of Paris to ensure that European legislation is interpreted and applied in the same way in each member state. The Court has the power to settle legal disputes between member states, institutions, businesses and individuals. The Court is composed of one judge per member state, ensuring the representation of all relevant legal systems.

The Court picked DBiT to distribute the Court's decisions in a wide variety of European languages. "We had to distribute half a million documents covering a wide variety of original source file formats," explained Marc-Olivier Lifrange, Commercial Manager, DBiT. "We then had to synthesize these files into one coherent database-type structure. As a final step, we had to deliver search results in about a dozen European languages."

For full-text searching and fielded data searching across this database, DBiT chose the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine. "The search engine we wanted to use had to be very configurable, and easy to integrate with our advanced classification systems, all in a multilingual Web-based environment," said Mr. Lifrange. "dtSearch met all of these criteria."

DBiT installed the dtSearch Engine on the Court's Web site, including the automatic indexing feature. "Automatic indexing was key for us." For the project, DBiT integrated fielded data, full text searching and multilingual support. "We had great success using dtSearch to hyperlink search results in a dozen or so European languages. dtSearch's flexibility with regard to multilingual support worked great."
