Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We describe a method which is able to translate queries extended by narrative information from one language to another, with help of an appropriate machine readable dictionary and the Wikipedia on-line  ...  Another related eld is language modeling (an excellent overview is provided by [12] ), and applying language modeling to machine translation [4, 6] or information retrieval [7] is not new.  ...  The last related area is cross-language information retrieval itself (see for instance [22] for an overview).  ...

Explicit Versus Latent Concept Models for Cross-Language Information Retrieval

Philipp Cimiano, Antje Schultz, Sergej Sizov, Philipp Sorg, Steffen Staab
2009 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper we investigate this question closer in the context of a cross-language setting, which inherently requires concept-based retrieval bridging between different languages.  ...  The field of information retrieval and text manipulation (classification, clustering) still strives for models allowing semantic information to be folded in to improve performance with respect to standard  ...  For mate retrieval evaluation, a text corpus with parallel documents in different languages is used.  ...
