Description of the search engine

The aim of this approach was to determine the behaviour of document indexing reduction in a cross language information retrieval environment. We have used a boolean model with the Jaccard similarity formula in order to rank the obtained documents related to some query. In order to reduce the terms of every document treated, we have applied a mid-frequency terms based technique, named Transition Point, which is described as follows.
