In this paper we propose a cross-lingual approach to the discourse automatic annotation of scientific articles by the Contextual Exploration method. We present an application to French and Bulgarian as an illustration of the possibility to work with different languages that the method provides. We describe the methodology for the construction of the linguistic ressources for Bulgarian based on the already existing resources for French and make an evaluation of the obtained annotations. We also discuss some of the applications of the discourse automatic annotation for automatic summarization and information retrieval.
