Abstract

This paper describes an Information Retrieval engine that is used to support our Chinese-Portuguese machine translation services when no internet connection is available. Our mobile translation app, which is deployed on a portable device, relies by default on a server-based machine translation service, which is not accessible when no internet connection is available. For providing translation support under this condition, we have developed a contextualized off-line search engine that allows the users to continue using the app.
