Abstract—One of the first Multi-Language Information Retrieval (MLIR) systems was implemented in 1969 by Gerard Salton who enhanced his SMART system to retrieve multilingual documents in two languages, English and German. However, the research field of MLIR is still struggling since the majority of information retrieval systems are monolingual and more precisely English-based, even though only 6% of the world’s population native language have as English [14]. This paper presents a MultiLanguage Information Retrieval (MLIR) approach that falls into the area of Domain Specific Information Retrieval (E-learning being the domain). The approach we followed is a synergistic approach between (1) Thesaurus-based Approach and (2) Corpusbased Approach. This research has been implemented on a real platform called HyperManyMedia1 at Western Kentucky University.
