This article describes a method and tool to identify expert translators in an on-demand translation service. We start from existing efforts on expert retrieval and factor in additional parameters based on the real-world scenario of the task. The system first identifies topical expertise using an aggregation function over relevance scores of previously translated documents by each translator, and then a learning to rank method to factor in non-topical relevance factors that are part of the decision-making process of the user, such as price and duration of translation. We test the system on a manually created test collection and show that the method is able to effectively support the user in selecting the best translator.
