This kind of go's outside Kentico. As you might know Kentico uses Apache Lucene as search tool. However to extend the synonym search for languages other than English, you need to create a Lucene search index containing the synonym data.

You can find more info on how to do this here:

You really don't need to do that hassle. Most of these things are available unless you would like to create a special synonyms subset.

Otherwise everything is available here - Synonym database

You would need to create your own index as David suggest and make use of synonym analyzer rather than standard analyzer.

Thanks, Chetan
