I'm using Apache Solr Search Integration to do the searching on our website, works great except i get results for all the language on the site instead of only the one the user is currently using.

Is there a way to show only nodes that are in the current users language? Either filter it out of the results by a simple check or directly in the query?

I was hoping there would be a hook to alter the results before the pager is created, i got as for as filtering out the other language in hook_apachesolr_search_page_alter() but thats to late, then you get a pager for 3 pages with only one result.

I also tried Apache Solr Multilingual but that doesn't seem the work really well at the moment for 7.x.

One way to do this is to implement hook_apachesolr_query_alter() to automatically filter on the current language. In a custom module called "mymodule", the code snippet would look similar to the following:

 * Implement hook_apachesolr_query_alter()
function mymodule_apachesolr_query_alter($query) {
  global $language;
  $query->addFilter("ss_language", $language->language);

    The above piece of code solves this issue:):) Thanks Chris:)
