The problem of finding documents written in a language that the searcher cannot read is perhaps the most challenging application of cross-language information retrieval technology. In interactive applications, that task involves at least two steps: (1) the machine locates promising documents in a collection that is larger than the searcher could scan, and (2) the searcher recognizes documents relevant to their intended use from among those nominated by the machine. The goal of the 2001

This paper describes the shared experiment design used at all three participating sites, summarizes preliminary results from the evaluation, and concludes with observations on lessons learned that can inform the design of subsequent evaluation campaigns.
