Searching and Summarizing in Multilingual Environment

Searching and Summarizing in Multilingual Environment

Multilingual text processing has become an important field bringing a lot of new and interesting problems. Their possible solutions are proposed in this paper. Its first part is devoted to methods for multilingual searching, the second part deals with the summarization of retrieved texts. We tested several novel processing techniques: a language-independent storage format, semantic-based indexing, query expansion or text summarization leading to faster and easier retrieval and understanding of documents.
