- Working for 5 years with a Swiss company can have side effects... like literally falling in love with a culture and a country.

- Here is a really simple way to handle synonyms (or extra keywords) using Search API out of the box with a database server and no custom code involved.

The method should be flexible regarding translations, available for content editors and easily generalizable.
