This report describes the work done by the QA group of the Language Technology Lab at DFKI for the 2005 edition of the Cross-Language Evaluation Forum (CLEF). We describe the extensions made to our 2004 QA@CLEF German/English QA-system, especially the question--type driven selection of answer strategies. Furthermore, details concerning the processing of definition and temporal questions are described, as well as the results obtained in the monolingual German, bilingual English/German, and bilingual German/English tasks are presented and discussed throughout the paper.
