Abstract

Cross-Language Information Retrieval (CUR) is quickly becoming a mature area in the information retrieval world. The goal is to allow a user to issue a query in language L and have that query retrieve documents in language L′ (see Figure 4.1). The idea is that the user wants to issue a single query against a document collection that contains documents in a myriad of languages. An implicit assumption is that the user understands results obtained in multiple languages. If this is not the case, it is necessary for the retrieval system to translate the selected foreign language documents into a language that the user can understand. Surveys of cross-language information retrieval techniques and multilingual processing include [Gard and Diekema, 1998, Haddouti, 1999].
