The present paper will seek to present an approach to bilingual lexicon extrac- tion from non-aligned comparable cor- pora, phrasal translation as well as evalua- tions on Cross-Language Information Re- trieval. A two-stages translation model is proposed for the acquisition of bilin- gual terminology from comparable cor- pora, disambiguation and selection of best translation alternatives according to their linguistics-based knowledge. Different re- scoring techniques are proposed and eval- uated in order to select best phrasal trans- lation alternatives. Results demonstrate that the proposed translation model yields better translations and retrieval effective- ness could be achieved across Japanese- English language pair.
