The Effectiveness of a Dictionary-Based Technique for Indonesian-English Cross-Language Text Retrieval

Abstract
We evaluate the effectiveness of a dictionary-based cross-language text retrieval technique which uses a two-way dictionary for translating queries from their original language into the language of the text documents. As can be expected, the translated queries are not as effective as queries formulated by the users using the same language as the text documents. We then apply a local-feedback technique to expand the translated queries in order to improve their retrieval effectiveness. Our empirical results show that the technique is effective for English-Indonesian and Indonesian-English cross-language retrieval.
