Adaptation of Cross-Lingual Transfer Methods for the Building of Medical Terminology in Ukrainian

Abstract : An increasing availability of parallel bilingual corpora and of automatic methods and tools makes it possible to build linguistic and terminological resources for low-resourced languages. We propose to exploit corpora available in several languages for building bilingual and trilingual terminologies. Typically, terminology information extracted in better resourced languages is associated with the corresponding units in lower-resourced languages thanks to the multilingual transfer. The method is applied on corpora involving Ukrainian language. According to the experiments, precision of term extraction varies between 0.454 and 0.966, while the quality of the interlingual relations varies between 0.309 and 0.965. The resource built contains 4,588 medical terms in Ukrainian and their 34,267 relations with French and English terms.
