Hi Alexandre,

I don't have time for a call, but to give you some pointers, Lucene does
the following that may be related to natural language processing:
 - Word segmentation via the `Tokenizer` class. It is rather simple for
western languages (including French, see StandardTokenizer), but less for
eg. Japanese or Korean which we also support.
 - We have a couple stemmers implemented via `TokenFilter`s, including for
French, see the `` package.

Lucene doesn't deal with file types directly, you need to be able to pass a
string or a stream of characters. If you have a text file, this is easy. If
you have PDF files, you will need to use 3rd-party libraries such as Tika
to extract content.

Not really relevant: it's up to you to decide where you store your data.

Being a library, I guess the answer is yes.
