Multilingual embeddings with ada

Hi, i want to use ada embeddings for a recommendation engine. I have a database which has descritions of movies in either german or english. Can I use the database with these two languages combined or does it have to be one language?

It doesn’t have to be one language.
What the embedding model does is just to give ‘embedding’ of the input. It is not affected by previous requests.

In my opinion, if the query is in English, it’s likely to be closer to ones in English than ones in German if they are written in English even if they have same meaning vice versa.

You can ask the user what language they prefer in advance.

Then you’ll have to run query only against the embeddings in the specified language.

Save time and compute.
