Cross-lingual text retrieval (CLTR) is a technique for locating relevant documents in different languages. The authors have developed fuzzy conceptual indexing (FCI) to extend CLTR to include documents that share concepts but don't contain exact translations of query terms. In FCI, documents and queries are represented as a function of language-independent concepts, thus enabling direct mapping between them across multiple languages. Experimental results suggest that concept-based CLTR outperforms translation-based CLTR in identifying conceptually relevant documents.
