This paper presents two cross-language question answering systems. They find answers from an English document collection to natural language questions presented in Finnish. These systems are the first open domain question answering systems ever reported to work in Finnish. One of the systems serves as a baseline and it has been designed to be as simple as possible. The other system uses more sophisticated knowledge engineering and human language technologies.
