Various cross-modal retrieval methods that can retrieve images related to a query sentence without text annotations have been proposed. Although a high level of retrieval performance is achieved by these methods, they have been developed for a single domain retrieval setting. When retrieval candidate images come from various domains, the retrieval performance of these methods might be decreased. To deal with this problem, we propose a new domain adaptive cross-modal retrieval method. By translating a modality and domains of a query and candidate images, our method can retrieve desired images accurately in a different domain retrieval setting. Experimental results for clipart and painting datasets showed that the proposed method has better retrieval performance than that of other conventional and state-of-the-art methods.
