This paper reports an experiment to evaluate a Cross Language Information Retrieval (CLIR) system that uses a multilingual ontology to improve query translation in the travel domain. The ontology-based approach significantly outperformed the Machine Readable Dictionary translation baseline using Mean Average Precision as a metric in a usercentered experiment. Index terms-Ontology, multilingual, cross language information retrieval.
