    I have 3 languages for my site:  English, French, and German.

    I have a search control on my search page, and I am only getting English results back, no matter what language is selected.  Is there a particular reason that only the default culture would get indexed?  Am I missing a setting?

    In addition, has anything changed for how localized search results are displayed, or do I need workaround code to get this to function?  Why would a French speaking user want English search results?  Is this functionality built in for a reason?  I haven't completely wrapped my mind around that one yet.

    I could be completely missing some sort of documentation, but I have come up with nothing.

    Thanks in advance,

    Hello Mark,

    1. Please make sure you have set "Index this page" page property for your pages.
    2. It is possible that you have a control or some logic on your pages or inside the template and this breaks the crawler. Please check App_Data/sitefinity.log file for any related errors.
