Some Experiments with the Dutch Collection
Cross-Language Evaluation Forum
We performed some basic monolingual Dutch and bilingual English–Dutch experiments. The retrieval approach is very basic, without stemming or decompounding, using only a simple language model to rank the documents. In the bilingual task, the English queries are analyzed by a system for question answering. The resulting queries are translated by dictionary lookup and ranked by the same basic retrieval system used in the monolingual task.
