Is no extractable data used because you cannot read the language.
I am reviewing batches with no extractable data, and the record is in another language but you can see clearly there's dates and names but I assumed the indexer like myself cannot make sense if it's a birth or death, or what the dates refer to. So I am asking this because if I came across this file, I would return the file but mark the files as yes, because someone from that experience of that language would be able to make sense of this, and yet I have received these files with "no extractable data" and I believe there is data and just need the right indexer to do these record. I am reviewing Samoan records, and came across German records with Samoan names sorry I haven't attached any record of it but will when I come across it again. I hope this make sense, and someone be able to clear it for me, TIA.

No, "no extractable data" is not the appropriate answer when the indexer doesn't speak/read the language in the document.
If the indexer could not read the language, the batch should have been returned for another indexer to work on.3
thanks for your response and confirming what I was thinking was right.1
