    Multi string matching in Productnames

    firebase

      I am trying to find a solution to find product names in long product link lists.

       

      For example I search for

       

          BMW 420d xD Grand Coupe

       

      and in this long link list there are three more or less fitting entry like

       

          BMW 420d xD Coupe used

          BMW 430d xD Grand Coupe white

          BMW 420d xD Caprio black, new

       

      And a few other that are no so close, but simular, like

          BMW 330d red

       

      Also there can be even more other words of variations of the exact naming I search for. like used, new, KW, color what ever a car can have, or instead of xD it could be xDrive which is 4 wheel.

       

      Does anyone have any strategies or HowTos or examples where I can start to find a solution?

       

      I am using the MBS Plug-in and tried these functions

      Text.LevenshteinDistance

      Text.JaroWinklerDistance

       

      So far but with not much luck.

       

      After some time I thought if i maybe could load these lists into some Google Service and use their API, but which???
