Hi, I'm afraid your question is a bit generic.
First of all, what search
are you using? Did you install some extensions and/or configure something?
If not, what database are you using?
MediaWiki definitely supports Chinese search in English wikis, e.g. <
E4%BE%8B%E9%AB%94%E5%88%B6>. Nowadays all search efforts are being spent
on this extension, which you're encouraged to try: <

multilingualism wrong and no fancy things are really possible, because
MediaWiki is quite silly about it. Hopefully 1.25 will be better and there
are some features you can already test:
