Abstract

The goal of this paper is to cross-lingually analyze multilingual blogs collected with a topic keyword.  The framework of collecting multilingual blogs with a topic keyword is designed as the blog feed retrieval procedure.  Multilingual queries for retrieving blog feeds are created from Wikipedia entries.  Finally, we present an interface for visualizing cross-lingual/cross-cultural differences in concerns and opinions that are closely related to a given topic.  Preliminary evaluation results support the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
