This paper describes our contribution to the Shared Task on Translation Inference across Dictionaries (TIAD-2019). In our approach, we construct a multi-lingual word embedding space by projecting new languages in the feature space of a language for which a pretrained embedding model exists. We use the similarity of the word embeddings to predict candidate translations. Even if our projection methodology is rather simplistic, our system outperforms the other participating systems with respect todoi:10.5281/zenodo.3555183 fatcat:ky5avcys7vd4lglkyuqw3fpvfi
