Translated Web Search
The motivation behind this project is to make available material in different languages searchable through a common interface. With availability of tools such as Google web search in numerous languages, this project will involve design of a front-end interface which allows user to search for desired queries (stated in one language) in available languages which are searchable over the internet. At the back-end, the interface to a web based search engine will transparently forward the query in different languages desired to be searched by the user. This would involve first translating the query into a particular language and then searching for those keywords in search engine supporting that language.
The task of translating the user query to searchable languages is to be automated with the help of web based tools. As a future extension, one may try to incorporate better translation schemes to make the search efficient across languages.
