I don't know whether this is possible in share point or not but can some one please confirm about this . I have created a multi-lingual term set so for eg for a term called energy i added a Spanish term also called Energía now when i am tagging if i tagged a document with Energy (or) Energía the document should appear on search .but its not happening like that .Is this default behavior can i achieve my requirement with any other way . for more clear understanding i am attaching my terms enter image description hereenter image description here

you would need that beyond tagging content to also run a full crawl. go onto the SSA and under Managed Properties and see if you find your actual Managed Metadata column mapped. have a look at your Crawl Log see if no issues appear. – Marius Constantinescu - MVP Jun 26 '12 at 19:47
Hi Marius Thanks for the comment . But when i am searching after a full crawl for the tag Energy in default laungauge (English ) the document is appearing .but when i am searching for Energia its not appearing ...also all these are terms so do i need to map every individual term if so can you please elaborate on that,.. – Anil Jun 26 '12 at 19:58
have you simply tried with a site in another language (Spanish)? as SharePoint uses those labels particularly in that case – Marius Constantinescu - MVP Jun 27 '12 at 6:02

I found some explanations on Timmy Gilissen's Blog of this behaviour:

MUI Managed metadata vs. Search

And a workaround

Multilingual Taxonomy Search

Hope it helps,
