I have two versions of every item (English and Chinese).

While indexing, I have noticed both the versions (English and Chinese) of every item is indexed.

How can I only index the English version.

Any recommendation would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

It is not possible OOTB but you can perform this by creating your custom crawler by inheriting the OOTB crawler (This customization is not recommended for Sitecore's OOTB indexes i.e sitecore_master_index, sitecore_web_index and sitecore_core_index.)

I have given a similar answer for creating a separate index for each language also you can modify this code a little for excluding some of languages from indexing - Sitecore Index - Separate index for each language
