Sumithra Velupillai attended the conference Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies (UCCTS) in Hangzhou, China, September 25-27. She presented the paper Automatic Dictionary Construction and Identification of Parallel Text Pairs which was written together with Martin Hassel and Hercules Dalianis. The experiments described in the paper have been part of the TvärSök project. We have looked at different methods for identifying whether a text pair is parallel or not. Such methods are important and useful for creating parallel corpora, which can be used for dictionary construction, machine translation, cross-lingual information retrieval, etc.
