UNED at WebCLEF 2005
This paper describes the experiments submitted by UNED’s NLP Group to the WebCLEF 2005 track in the bilingual English to Spanish task. We present two different runs: i) a simply search over the whole content of the documents; ii) a series of restricted searches over given fields according to their descriptiveness. Our newly developed approach for searching ordered fields performs 80% better than the baseline. We also describe a non-supervised approach to translate out-of-vocabulary words.
