A methodology for retrieving textual data objects in a multiplicity of languages is disclosed. The data objects are treated in the statistical domain by presuming that there is an underlying, latent semantic structure in the usage of words in each language under consideration. Estimates to this latent structure are utilized to represent and retrieve objects. A user query is recouched in the new statistical domain and then processed in the computer system to extract the underlying meaning to respond to the query.
