Towards Web Mining of Query Translations for Cross-Language Information Retrieval in Digital Libraries [chapter]

Wen-Hsiang Lu, Jenq-Haur Wang, Lee-Feng Chien
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed approach was implemented in a query translation engine called LiveTrans, which has been shown its feasibility in providing efficient English-Chinese CLIR services for DL. and new terminologies  ...  Search-result-based methods can have high coverage of various language pairs, but are especially useful for English-Chinese, due to the fact that the Web consists of rich texts in a mixture of Chinese  ...  Our previous experiments show that anchor-text-based method can achieve a good precision rate for popular queries and can extract longer translations in other languages besides Chinese and English [13  ...
