CACAO: Cross-language Access to Catalogues And On-line libraries

CACAO

CACAO offers an innovative approach for accessing, understanding and navigating multilingual textual content in digital libraries and OPACs, enabling European users to better exploit the available European electronic content. By coupling sound Natural Language Processing techniques with available information retrieval systems and tools for facilitating the maintenance of multilingual resources, CACAO aims at the delivery of a non-intrusive infrastructure to be integrated with current OPAC and digital libraries. The result of such an integration will be the possibility for the user to type in queries in his/her own language and retrieve volumes and documents in any available language.

Such an infrastructure will be crucial to promote aggregation of different contents at the European level.
