I would like to ask some question about transliteration. I mainly work on Chinese and my data contains both Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters. I use transliteration to perform a mapping so that if one search for data using a character in Simplified Chinese, the data that contains the word in both Simplified Chinese form and the corresponding Traditional Chinese form are retrieved. I would like to ask which operators can use this mapping of transliteration? I try and find that only the “~=” operator of the X-Query that can take the advantage of this feature. I try the “starts-with”, “between” operator and also the “tf:containsText” operator of XQuery and these operators fail to use the feature. Actually, I would like to find data that starts with some search Chinese word of both forms. Can anyone kindly give some help? Thanks.
