Cross-lingual query suggestion using query logs of different languages

Wei Gao, Cheng Niu, Jian-Yun Nie, Ming Zhou, Jian Hu, Kam-Fai Wong, Hsiao-Wuen Hon
2007 Proceedings of the 30th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '07  
In this paper, we extend it to cross-lingual query suggestion (CLQS): for a query in one language, we suggest similar or relevant queries in other languages.  ...  Instead of relying on existing query translation technologies for CLQS, we present an effective means to map the input query of one language to queries of the other language in the query log.  ...  CONCLUSIONS In this paper, we proposed a new approach to cross-lingual query suggestion by mining relevant queries in different languages from query logs.  ...

Cross-lingual Passage Re-ranking with Alignment Augmented Multilingual BERT

Dongmei Chen, Sheng Zhang, Xin Zhang, Kaijing Yang
2020 IEEE Access  
This further suggests that XPI can narrow the gap in cases where the query and the passages to be ranked are from different languages.  ...  cross-lingual alignment, using training, here, we modify the score of similarity defined in Eq.(1) so it is higher for the sentence pairs in different languages with the same meanings.  ...

Using English information in non-English web search

Wei Gao, John Blitzer, Ming Zhou
2008 Proceeding of the 2nd ACM workshop on Improving non english web searching - iNEWS '08  
We first show how to identify pairs of Chinese LNL queries and their English counterparts from Chinese and English query logs.  ...  Unfortunately, many of these features are absent or altered in other languages.  ...  Tao Qin also provided us with a fast implementation of RSVM, which we used in the experiments of this work.  ...

Novel methods for query selection and query combination in query-by-example spoken term detection

Javier Tejedor, Igor Szöke, Michal Fapso
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 international workshop on Searching spontaneous conversational speech - SSCS '10  
Experiments, tested on with-in language and cross-lingual QbE STD setups, show a significant improvement when the query is selected according to an optimal criterion over when the query is selected randomly  ...  for both setups and a significant improvement when several examples are combined to build the input query for the search system compared with the use of the single best example.  ...  It can be also Discussion The number of examples used to construct a more robust query seems to be stable both for with-in language and cross-lingual QbE (5 in our case).  ...

Combining Signals for Cross-Lingual Relevance Feedback [chapter]

Kristen Parton, Jianfeng Gao
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
On an evaluation with web data sampled from a real-world search engine, the proposed cross-lingual feedback model outperforms two state-of-the-art models across two different low-resource languages.  ...  We present a new cross-lingual relevance feedback model that improves a machine-learned ranker for a language with few training resources, using feedback from a better ranker for a language that has more  ...  were present in English/US query logs.  ...

2022 arXiv   pre-print
This problem is further exacerbated when using DSI for cross-lingual retrieval, where document text and query text are in different languages.  ...  Empirical results on popular mono-lingual and cross-lingual passage retrieval benchmark datasets show that DSI-QG significantly outperforms the original DSI model.  ...  and queries are from different languages.  ...

Language-Agnostic Representation Learning for Product Search on E-Commerce Platforms

Aman Ahuja, Nikhil Rao, Sumeet Katariya, Karthik Subbian, Chandan K. Reddy
2020 Proceedings of the 13th International Conference on Web Search and Data Mining  
This problem is exacerbated when products are cross-listed across countries that speak multiple languages, and customers specify queries in multiple languages and from different cultural contexts.  ...  By aligning the query and product representations from different languages into a language-independent vector space of queries and products, respectively, the proposed model improves the performance over  ...  For the former, we use anonymous user logs across the above countries. To create a query-query pair, we consider an item that is cross-listed across different countries.  ...

Xingyu Fu, Weijia Shi, Xiaodong Yu, Zian Zhao, Dan Roth
2020 arXiv   pre-print
We conclude that the LRL setting requires the use of outside-Wikipedia cross-lingual resources and present a simple yet effective zero-shot XEL system, QuEL, that utilizes search engines query logs.  ...  Cross-lingual Entity Linking (XEL), the problem of grounding mentions of entities in a foreign language text into an English knowledge base such as Wikipedia, has seen a lot of research in recent years  ...  We suggest that search engines query logs provide an excellent resource in this situation, since it is a (very large) super-set of Wikipedia's cross-lingual data but covers even more; as pointed out in  ...
