I am Akshi Gupta and I have a project proposal on which I would like to work under GSOC 2009 program.Idea is as follows-
A document D1 is there in Language L1. User is familiar only with language L2. He wants other documents in language L2 which are related to document D1. The search would provide all the documents which are related to document D1 in language L2. This would exempt the user from the toil of analyzing the whole document himself, finding important points in it and then searching the related documents in language L2 using Cross Language Information Retrieval techniques. User would require to specify language L2 only in which he requires other documents.
I have done many mini projects on information retrieval before. I have devised some implementation strategies also which I can discuss if anyone is interested in this. Please have a look and let me know your views.
