The development of natural language processing (NLP) systems that perform machine translation (MT) and information retrieval (IR) has highlighted the need for the automatic recognition of proper names. While vari- ous name recognizers have been developed, they suffer from being too limited; some only recognize one name class, and all are language specific. This work devel- ops an approach to multilingual name recognition that uses machine learning and a portable framework to simplify the porting task by maximizing reuse and au- tomation.
