Cross language information retrieval (CLIR) system is a part of Information Retrieval. It deals with retrieving information in a different language than in which documents are stored. User retrieves the result in the language of his choice. Computing has changed the way to process the data. Our research work develops an application which gives user the flexibility to interact with system in a language of his/her choice. Using this system, a user can enter the query in Hindi or English and retrieve the relevant documents in Hindi or English, though stored documents are in English only. Thus both types of users can get the information through the documents and images. The approach used for this application is to transform the query to English language and then query processing is done. After that retrieval of documents is done, the final output is converted to the desired language. The other way around would be to convert the documents to the query language and then start processing but that would increase the time complexity. In this system, query is in form of keyword in any of the language either Hindi or English. The corpus is of Allahabad museum consisting of images and documents. All the stored documents related to Allahabad museum are in English language. The system successfully handles different types of cross language user queries related to Allahabad Museum.
