Toshiba submitted six runs in the NTCIR crosslingual task. Our basic approach was translation of Japanese search requests into English using a commercial machine translation system. Runs TSB1, TSB5 and TSB6 used the ASTRANSAC machine translation system, while, for comparison, TSB3 used queries manually constructed by a bilingual. TSB2 is TSB1 plus local feedback, and TSB4 is TSB3 plus local feedback. Therefore, only TSB1, TSB2, TSB5 and TSB6 can be considered as automatic runs. Runs TSB1… CONTINUE READING
