In this article, we survey the current research on the named entity (NE) recognition and translation, propose an information extraction-based module for NE recognition and translation, put some integrated enhancement methods on NE translation, and integrate the module into a cross-language information retrieval (CLIR) system. Then we conduct experiments to examine the effectiveness of the integrated module in CLIR. The experiment results show that recognizing and translating named entities plays important role in CLIR, and our methods of weighting translations and mining translations on the Web for out of vocabulary named entities can significantly improve CLIR performance.
