Hi. Thank you very much for your very hard efforts to add Arabic language & support it ! I started to use since it was 0.13.0 then 0.14.0 & stop from it's use due to bad result when I enter Arabic language search entries. But 2 days ago, I return to to re-examine it again & I noticed that there is great jump in support Arabic language !

However, I noticed that result will be good if I use "General" type of search. But if I use others, like "Images" , "Files", "Map" ........ result will be disappointing as following:

  • I received non relevant result in English (when I say "non relevant" I mean really non relevant). This specially with "Files" type of search.
  • received "Error! Engines can not retrieve results. ........ PLease try again later or find other searx instances". This specially with "It" type of search.

Kindly, your fix for that.

Can you provide an example, to help to narrow the investigation down ?

When I search for "منزل", I get results more or less related (I used google translate, I don't speak arabic).
