Fast and efficient enterprise search application with query support in 40 different languages

What other advice do I have?

A very good enterprise search application with a good administrative user interface which is intuitive and easy to use. The re-indexing rate is quite high and this keeps the search results updated. It can crawl a large number of web pages in a very short span of time. It smartly handles synonyms. However there are some issues with the search results produced. It is seen that the search results produced are ordered as per relevance and they seem to follow some random order. Indexing of content can be easily configured by specifying URLs.
