Abstract  In this paper, the process of building comparable corpus in special domain for bilingual terminology is designed. Firstly, bilingual sample corpus in a special domain is collected, and keywords are extracted from the sample corpus based on word co-occurrence method. Then, these keywords are used to be a query to a scholar search engine, and the searched result is used to be candidate comparable corpus. Finally, the comparable corpus in the special domain is obtained after filtering noise documents by quantitative evaluation.
