In this paper we describe our participation in the Knowledge Base Population (KBP) track at TAC 2011. The architecture of our slot filling system is the same as last year. We mainly focus on developing a new system for the cross-language entity linking task. We compare the performance of monolingual retrieval and cross-lingual retrieval for entity linking. For NIL entity clustering, we group retrieved documents into reference clusters and assign NIL entities to a cluster by calculating the similarity between its document and each cluster.
