AbstractThis article proposes a method for building new bilingual dictionaries from existing ones and the use of comparable corpora. More precisely, a new bilingual dictionary with pairs in two target languages is built in two steps. First, a noisy dictionary is generated by transitivity by crossing two existing dictionaries containing translation pairs in one of the two target languages and an intermediary one. The result of crossing the two existing dictionaries gives rise to a noisy resource because of the ambiguity of words in the intermediary language. Second, odd translation pairs are filtered out by making use of a set of bilingual lexicons automatically extracted from comparable corpora. The quality of the fi ltered dictionary is very high, close to that of those dictionaries built by lexicographs. We also report a case study where a new, non noisy, English-Portuguese dictionary with more than 7,000 bilingual entries was automatically generated.
