In this article we present a novel way of look- ing at the problem of automatic acquisition of pairs of translationally equivalent words from comparable corpora. We first present the standard and extended approaches tradi- tionally dedicated to this task. We then re- interpret the extended method, and motivate a novel model to reformulate this approach in- spired by the metasearch engines in informa- tion retrieval. The empirical results show that performances of our model are always better than the baseline obtained with the extended approach and also competitive with the stan- dard approach.
