Multilingual LOD: Oh, The Possibilities

Ivan Herman recently discussed the possibilities of multilingual linked open data.

Ivan Herman recently discussed the possibilities of multilingual linked open data. He writes, “Experts developing Web sites for various cultures and languages know that it is way better to include such features into Web pages at the start, i.e., at the time of the core design, rather than to ‘add’ them once the site is done. What is valid for Web sites is also valid for data deployed on the Web, and that is especially true for Linked Data whose mantra is to combine data and datasets from all over the place.”

He continues, “Why do I say all this? I had the pleasure to participate, earlier this week, at the MultilingualWeb Workshop in Rome, Italy. One of the topics of the workshop was Linked (Open) Data and its multilingual (and, also, multicultural) aspects. There were a number of presentations at a dedicated session (the presentations are online, linked from the Workshop Page; just scroll down and look for a session entitled ‘Machines’), and there was also a separate break-out session (the slides are not yet on-line, but they should be soon). There are also a number of interesting projects and issues in this area beyond those presented at the event; for example, the lemon model or the (related) Monnet EU project as examples.”
