A comparison of interlingua and query translation is proposed in a
particular cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) application which consists
on retrieving a book from the collection by using one of its chapters in a different
language as a query. The experiments are performed in three languages (English,
Chinese and Spanish) and all the possible combinations. It is shown that interlingua
is able to outperform the query translation approach in some cross-language
tasks. Results are further analysed and it is found that, for this particular task, the
quality of translation (in terms of BLEU and PER) is not directly correlated with
the query translation performance.
