Multilingual European Federated Search Service


URL: www.iol.it/

The EUROsearch project aims to build a federation of European World Wide Web search and classification sites in order to improve acess to information for speakers of language other than English and so to promote the concept of a multilingual and multicultural Information Society.

EUROsearch users will be able to retrieve information by formulating queries in their own language which will be used not only to search sites in that language but which will also be automatically translated and passed to engines working in other languages, and maintained by native speakers of that language. The results of the search will be relayed back to the user who will be provided with information about the results in his or her own language. The project will develop these facilities for English-Spanish, English-Italian, and English-German, and will at the same time develop improvements to underlying information retrieval technology.
