This paper presents a multi-languages search scheme for Yahoo image search. The methodology for searching is to retrieve a wide variety of images annotated in different languages Websites from Yahoo image search engine. The proposed methodology consists of two main parts as follows: 1) multi-language translation and 2) multi-crawling, retrieving results with images annotated in different languages. The first part is used to accept user's query and to perform cross-language translation into different languages. The second part, a given query is sent to Yahoo BOSS API to perform image retrieval task. The multithreading processes were designed and implemented to resolve the problem of crossing language queries and retrieving images processes. It can greatly reduce lot of time and effort for the search. The experiments on diverse queries on Yahoo images search have shown that the proposed scheme can improve the images results for non-English keyword effectively.
