This paper presents an approach that ex- tends the standard approach used for bilin- gual lexicon extraction from comparable corpora. We focus on the unresolved prob- lem of polysemous words revealed by the bilingual dictionary and introduce a use of a Word Sense Disambiguation process that aims at improving the adequacy of con- text vectors. On two specialized French- English comparable corpora, empirical ex- perimental results show that our method improves the results obtained by two state- of-the-art approaches.
