[edit] Abstract

Multilingual linguistic resources are usually constructed from parallel corpora, but since these corpora are available only for selected text domains and language pairs, the potential of other resources is being explored as well. This article seeks to explore and to exploit the idea of using multilingual web-based encyclopedias such as Wikipedia as comparable corpora for bilingual terminology extraction. We propose an approach to extract terms and their translations from different types of Wikipedia link information and data. The next step will be using a linguistic-based information to re-rank and filter the extracted term candidates in the target language. Preliminary evaluations using the combined statistics-based and linguistic-based approaches were applied on different pairs of languages including Japanese, French and English. These evaluations showed a real open improvement and a good quality of the extracted term candidates for building or enriching multilingual ontology, dictionaries or feeding a cross-language information retrieval system with the related expansion terms of the source query.
