We present the results of our Arabic and English runs at the TAC 2011 Multilingual summarisation (MultiLing) task. We participated with centroid-based clustering for multidocument summarisation. The automatically generated Arabic and English summaries were evaluated by human participants and by two automatic evaluation metrics, ROUGE and AutoSummENG. The results are compared with the other systems that participated in the same track on both Arabic and English languages. Our Arabic summariser performed particularly well in the human evaluation.
