TITAN: A Cross-linguistic Search Engine for the WWW

Yoshihiko Hayashi, Gen'ichiro Kikui and Seiji Susaki

Although various search services are available on the World-Wide Web, there are only a few services that can help people access web pages in a foreign language. In order to solve this problem we have developed a cross-linguistic WWW search engine, TITANl, which provides users with an interface to query in their native languages (e.g.,Japanese) while performing multilingua] searches on the WWW. This paper outlines TITAN, and details two modules in the system, which are essentiM in cross-linguistic search of web pages; a module for identifying languages of the pages, and a simple MT module, which performs bi-directionaJ translation between Japanese and English, employed by the navigation interface of the system.
