We present a report on our participation in the English-Indonesian image ad-hoc task of the 2005 Cross-Language Evaluation Forum (CLEF). We chose to translate an Indonesian query set into English using a commercial machine translation tool called Transtool. We used an approach that combines the retrieval results of the query on text and on image. We used query expansion in our effort to improve the retrieval effectiveness. However, worse retrieval effectiveness was resulted.
