TypeTechnical Report
AbstractThis technical report is an extended version of the article “Using COTS Search Engines and Custom Query Strategies at CLEF” (Nadeau et al., 2004) published in the proceedings of CLEF 2004. It presents Sbire, a system for bilingual information retrieval using commercial off-the-shelf search engines (COTS). The development of Sbire was motivated by a participation in the CLEF evaluation. For this reason, some development presented in this report cannot be applied to a real-word crosslanguage information retrieval. For instance, we present how to build a query from a textual topic and this “query construction” step is done by the user in a real-world IR system. The report emphasizes on our experiments in the CLEF environment as well as on the final Sbire architecture. It is mainly intended for developers of cross-lingual information retrieval system that aspire to participate in CLEF or similar events.
