Supporting Search in a Multilingual World


The Internet is a vast multilingual commons, and the past decade has seen a dramatic acceleration of research on the construction of systems to support multilingual information access. In this talk, I will describe the key advances in cross-language information retrieval and machine translation that now enable us to build systems that span language barriers to some degree for some purposes. With that as background, I will then step back and look at the problem from the perspective of an application developer to identify critical gaps in the present technology that could inhibit adoption in Web and enterprise search applications.
