Abstract:

For TREC-8, the Berkeley experiments concentrated on the special GIRT collection. We utilized the GIRT thesaurus in multiple ways in working on English-German Cross-Language IR. Since the GIRT collection is truly multilingual documents contain both German and English text, one would expect multilingual queries to achieve the best performance. This proved not to be the case.
