With the rapid growing amount of available information, an important problem is formed, to match the user queries specified in one language against documents in another different language, i.e. cross-language information retrieval. Based on the work for cross-language information retrieval evaluation task in the 9th Text Retrieval Conference, a Chinese-English cross-language information retrieval pattern has been constructed. In this pattern, Chinese-English query translation is adopted as the dominant strategy, Chinese queries are used as translation objects, and Chinese-English machine readable dictionaries are utilized as the important knowledge source to acquire correct translations. By combining English monolingual information retrieval module constructed, the Chinese-English cross-language information retrieval process can be implemented successfully.
