There are lots of things you may want to change based on
experience with your index:

  *  change the set of token boundary characters
     they define, where words are broken out.

  *  change the set of removed characters
     they are removed from the words, usually for

     In German, e.g., you can write both "Auto-Lackierer"
     and "Autolackierer". You want to normalize
     these different spellings.

  *  change the set of "composing" characters

     German is very rich in composite terms.
     You may want to index under each component term.
     For this, you need the rules on how the composition
     is build.
     For text, it is usually '-'. But if you have
     computer sources, '_' or ':' may be relevant, too.

Of couse, the search must follow the same splitting rules
than the indexing did. Changing the rules (the splitter
or its configuration) after indexing will make the index
