This is a summary report about the Cross-Language Spoken Document Retrieval Track held at CLEF 2004. The report gives brief details of CL-SDR task based again this year on the TREC 8-9 SDR task. This year the CL-SDR task worked with an unknown story boundaries condition. The paper reports results from the participants showing that as expected cross-language results are reduced relative to a monolingual baseline, although the amount to which they are degraded varies for topic languages.
