Computing cross-lingual semantic textual similarities based on machine learning

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) This paper proposes a method to compute cross-lingual semantic textual similarities between sentences in different languages. The method is based on a machine-learning approach, which employs several monolingual similarity features chiefly proposed by projects participated in the *SEM STS (Semantic Textual Similarity) task. To utilize the monolingual features in a cross-lingual setting, we tested two methods to cross language borders: one utilizes bilingual dictionaries and the other employs off-the-shelf machine-translation engines. While our experimental results demonstrated such a translate then monolingual similarity method was reasonably effective in cross-lingual STS for English, Japanese, and Chinese, it has also been insisted that syntactic/structural differences have to be incorporated into the machine-learning based framework.
