Abstract:
We present in this article experiments on multi-language information extraction and access in the medical
domain. Methods for extracting bilingual lexicons form parallel and comparable corpora are described and
their use in multi-language information access is illustrated. Our experiments show that these automatically
extracted bilingual lexicons are accurate enough for semi-automatically enriching mono- or bilingual thesauri
(such as UMLS), and that their use in Multi- language information retrieval (CLIR) significantly improves
performance and clearly outperforms existing bilingual lexicons resources (general lexicons and specialized
ones).
