Named entity translation is indispensable in cross language information retrieval nowadays. We propose an approach of combining lexical information, web sta- tistics, and inverse search based on Google to backward translate a Chinese named entity (NE) into English. Our sys- tem achieves a high Top-1 accuracy of 87.6%, which is a relatively good per- formance reported in this area until pre- sent.
