Towards Analysis Tools for a Multilingual Blogsphere

Douglas W. Oard

Many approaches to Weblog analysis draw on words found in the postings and comments, and the meaning of those words is inherently bound to a language. Moving beyond single-language analysis will require tools that leverage translation resources in ways that are well matched to the task. In this paper, we describe how state of the art techniques developed originally for machine translation and cross-language information retrieval could provide a foundation for extending existing blog analysis tools to learn from many languages things would be harder to see in just one.
