Researchers from Europe, Japan and America present a wide variety of techniques and experimental results. The life-size experiments are run on modern large-scale retrieval testbeds, running up to hundreds of megabytes of texts. The techniques involve using bilingual dictionaries, machine translation systems, parallel text corpora, comparable but non-parallel text corpora, latent semantic indexing, and weighted Boolean interrogation.
This book is suitable as a secondary text for a graduate level course on Cross-Language Information Retrieval, and as a reference for researchers and practitioners in industry.
