A Framework for Cross-language Search Personalization

M. Rami Ghorab, Dong Zhou, Alexander O'Connor, Vincent Wade
2009 2009 Fourth International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization  
Our experiments involved mining multilingual search logs for interesting patterns of cross-language search behavior. Different patterns were exhibited for users of different languages.  ...  First, the framework extends to the area of cross-language information retrieval. Second, the study aims to elicit features of cross-language search behavior from multilingual search logs.  ...  Acknowledgements This research is supported by the Science Foundation of Ireland (grant 07/CE/I1142) as part of the Centre for Next Generation Localisation ( at Trinity College, Dublin.  ...
