The performance of major search engines for Basque is far from satisfactory, partly due to the agglutinative nature of the language -it is commonly known that search engines do not perform well with such languages- and partly because it is not a language to which search engines restrict their results. In this paper we present EusBila, a search service for Basque that relies on the APIs of search engines, yet obtains a lemma-based and language-filtered search by means of morphological query expansion and language-filtering words. It is a cost-effective approach, which we think can be used for other agglutinative or minority languages. We also evaluate how well EusBila performs when carrying out a Basque query, and we compare this performance to that of a major search engine in terms of precision and recall, thus demonstrating that EusBila is a very valid solution.
