Are objects only searchable in their original language?

Entering a search term in the free-text field initiates a search through all data elements. Most object titles and descriptions come in the language provided by the contributing archive and in English at best. Hence, if you search a film title, a person or a keyword, you will only get results containing the exact search term that you entered. For example, if you search for “house” you will get different results than for “casa” etc. The same is true for film titles and their different international release titles as well as for spelling variants in person names. While we generally recommend using English terms to get the most results, entering the original title when looking for a film work will increase your chances of a successful search.
