Our report describes the results of work in our participation in the Indonesian-English question-answering task of the 2006 Cross-Language Evaluation Forum (CLEF). In this work we translated an Indonesian query set into English using a machine translation tool available on the internet. Documents relevant to a question are first retrieved. The relevant documents are then divided into passages of 5 sentences each. The answer to the question is extracted from a passage relevant to the query. The answer is identified based on matching annotations between the query and the documents. A linguistic tool is used to annotate the words in the queries and the documents.
