Japanese-English Bilingual Lexicon for Research and Demonstration

Fredric Gey, University of California


This page delivers the Japanese-English Bilingual Lexicon Described in my LREC 2008 paper “A Japanese-English Technical Lexicon for Translation and Language Research” (joint with David K Evans and Noriko Kando). The page is under construction,but the first three data files should be ready by June 6, 2008. The data are based on my visiting research appointment at the National Institute of Informatics of Tokyo during the summer of 2007. My final presentation at NII in August 2007 may be found here. My co-author, David Kirk Evan’s presentation at LREC 2008, which includes our evaluation of the lexicon, may be found here.
