Now you can search across content in 37 different languages!

Set your language preference in Profile → General → Language Filter

You will find non-English content populating your search results across all document types. Nonetheless, the following 3 will represent the largest share of non-English content: regional News & Trade Publications, Global Filings, and Broker Research.


What languages can I search in AlphaSense?

English, Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese. We also allow “Other Languages” as a filter to include documents in any languages that aren’t listed or documents with no language identified.

What non-English sources do you have?

Many AlphaSense sources contribute in multiple languages, including global filings, investment decks, major international news publications, global broker research, and more. For News & Trade Publications, non-English content has language appended to the source name. Thus, the easiest way to find German News & trade Publications would be to enter German in the source menu search.

Will there be smart synonyms on non-English searches?

Not yet, but our non-English searches still support keyword with proximity search.

Do you translate non-English content to English?

Translation capabilities are not available in AlphaSense currently.

How do I get access to the non-English Beta?

Log into the AlphaSense platform, click your initials on the bottom left, then under Preferences, click on “General,” and you will find Language Filter. Here you can select which language content you want to appear in your search results, dashboards, and alerts.
