All these tracks were new for us. For Cross Language track, we made use of two techniques of query translation: MT software and bilingual wordlist lookup with disambiguation.

Evaluation shows that English-Chinese crosslingual retrieval using only wordlist query translation can achieve about 70-75% of monolingual average precision, and combination with MT query translation further brings this effectiveness to 80-85% of monolingual. Results are well-above m...
