Feiyu Xu, Hans Uszkoreit

In: Multilingual Information Service System for the Beijing 2008 Olympics Forum, The 7th China Beijing International High-Tech Expo (CHITEC). International High-Tech Expo (CHITEC) 2004.


The presentation will summarize the state of the art in cross-lingual and multilingual information systems and related areas. We will start with an outline of basic problems and major approaches [Uszkoreit, 1998]. In order to demonstrate the relevant concepts and strategies, we will present several multilingual information systems that we have realized in various projects, e.g., MIETTA, MULINEX, GETESS and MUMIS ([Xu et al., 2000a], [Capstick et al. 1999], [Staab et al., 1999], [Declerck and Wittenburg, 2001]), In conclusion, we will discuss how some of the developed ideas may be exploited by the /Multilingual Information Service System for the Beijing 2008 Olympics.
