Although knowledge processing on the Semantic Web is inherently language-independent, human interaction with semantically structured and linked data will be text or speech based – in multiple languages. Semantic Web development is therefore increasingly concerned with issues in multilingual querying and rendering of web knowledge and linked data. The Monnet project on 'Multilingual Ontologies for Networked Knowledge' provides solutions for this by offering methods for lexicalising and translating knowledge structures, such as ontologies and linked data vocabularies. The talk will discuss challenges and solutions in ontology lexicalisation and translation (localisation) by way of several use cases that are under development in the context of the Monnet project.
