Fuzzy search

This topic describes the basics of the "fuzzy search" feature in Episerver Find. 

How it works

Fuzzy search locates content likely to be relevant to a search argument even when this does not exactly match the desired information. A fuzzy search is done using a fuzzy matching program, returning a list of results with likely relevance.

Episerver Find's "Fuzzy search" replicates the "fuzzy query" in Elasticsearch.  It is based on the Levenshtein distance.
