A Graph-based Approach to Cross-language Multi-document Summarization

Abstract : Cross-language summarization is the task of generating a summary in a language different from the language of the source documents. In this paper, we propose a graph-based approach to multi-document summarization that integrates machine translation quality scores in the sentence extraction process. We evaluate our method on a manually translated subset of the DUC 2004 evaluation campaign. Results indicate that our approach improves the readability of the generated summaries without degrading their informativity. Index Terms-Graph-based approach, cross-language multi-document summarization.
