Abstract

A lot of bilingual dictionaries have been released on the WWW. However, these dictionaries insufficiently cover new and domainspecific terminology. In our demonstration, we present a dictionary constructed by analyzing the link structure of Wikipedia, a huge scale encyclopedia containing a large amount of links between articles in different languages. We analyzed not only these interlanguage links but extracted even more translation candidates from redirect page and link text information. In an experiment, we already proved the advantages of our dictionary compared to manually created dictionaries as well as to extracting bilingual terminology from parallel corpora.
