Pirkola, Ari; Puolamaki, Deniz; Jarvelin, Kalervo
Information Processing & Management, v39 n3 p391-402 May 2003
Explores ways to apply query structuring in cross-language information retrieval. Tested were: English queries translated into Finnish using an electronic dictionary, and run in a Finnish newspaper databases; effects of compound-based structuring using a proximity operator for translation equivalents of query language compound components; and a query structuring method where the Boolean and-operator was used to assign more weight to keys translated through n-gram matching.
