I have looked at those two documents for the multi-language. It points me in the right direction but since my records have both English and other languages contained in them, the multi-lexer might not work. For instance, my meta data in my table is in English but my full-text external document may be published in Spanish.

World Lexer probably would work but it does not allow you to use skip joins, etc. Our index needs the skip joins. So that doesn't seem to be the solution.

What I have found, although the Text Reference and Text Application Developer's Guide can help you with some things it may not contain enough information to help with more complex issues. Also, Oracle support has a limited amount of support personnel that knows anything about Oracle Text.

There are two books in the Oracle documentation on tech net. I don't know if they are included in the original poster's "I have already looked at the PDFs" or not. Since they are entiled "Oracle Text Application Developer's Guide" and "Oracle Text Reference" they sound like they might be something other than mentioned in this response. One confusing thing is that on Tech Net they seem to be referred to just as Text instead of Oracle Text but the title page of the PDF for both say Oracle Text.

I think when I was looking at them recently I did see see something about multi-language but since that was not what I was looking for I'm not sure. I found going back and forth between the two to be most helpful so I can't even say which one might have the information. If it matters I was looking at the 9iR2 documentation but just took a quick look at 10gR1 and 10gR2 to see if they exist there as well and they do.
