Searching and organizing images across languages

By P. Clough, M. Sanderson and X.M. Shou


With the continual growth of users on the Web\ud from a wide range of countries, supporting\ud such users in their search of cultural heritage\ud collections will grow in importance. In the\ud next few years, the growth areas of Internet\ud users will come from the Indian sub-continent\ud and China. Consequently, if holders of cultural\ud heritage collections wish their content to be\ud viewable by the full range of users coming to\ud the Internet, the range of languages that they\ud need to support will have to grow. This paper\ud will present recent work conducted at the\ud University of Sheffield (and now being\ud implemented in BRICKS) on how to use\ud automatic translation to provide search and\ud organisation facilities for a historical image\ud search engine. The system allows users to\ud search for images in seven different languages,\ud providing means for the user to examine\ud translated image captions and browse retrieved\ud images organised by categories written in their\ud native language
