This paper presents a method for facilitating cross-language retrieval and machine translation in domain specific collections. The method is based on a semi-automatic adaption of a multilingual domain ontology and it is particularly suitable for the eLearning domain. The presented approach has been integrated into a real-world system supporting cross-language retrieval and machine translation of large amounts of learning resources in nine European languages. The system was built in the context of a European Commission Supported project Eurogene and it is now being used as a European reference portal for teaching human genetics.
