This paper presents the second round of the task on Cross-lingual Textual Entailment for Content Synchronization, organized within SemEval-2013. The task was designed to pro- mote research on semantic inference over texts written in different languages, targeting at the same time a real application scenario. Par- ticipants were presented with datasets for dif- ferent language pairs, where multi-directional entailment relations (?forward?, ?backward?, ?bidirectional?, ?no entailment?) had to be identified. We report on the training and test data used for evaluation, the process of their creation, the participating systems (six teams, 61 runs), the approaches adopted and the re- sults achieved.
