Bringing Terminology to Linked Data through TBX

Bringing Terminology to Linked Data through TBX

This video was recorded at W3C Workshop: The Multilingual Web − Linked Open Data and MultilingualWeb-LT Requirements, Dublin 2012. There is currently a "strong separation" between the well-established fields of terminology and Linked Data. This presentation describes a proposal to adapt TermBase eXchange (TBX, ISO 30042)—the international standard for representing complex, typically multilingual termbases—for use in the Linked Data and MultilingualWeb-LT communities. This version would be called RDF-TBX and would be isomorphic to the current version TBX. It would help bring the terminology community and the Linked Data community (more generally the Semantic Web community) closer together. Possibile applications include (a) linking terms in data to a termbase that has been converted to RDF-TBX and (b) carrying out automated conversions between existing terminology resources with concept relations and existing Semantic Web ontology resources. I would like to determine though face-to-face interaction at the workshop whether this project, if carried out, is likely to address the separation between terminology and Linked Data. Depending on the reaction to this position by the Dublin workshop participants, an RDF-TBX project could begin immediately at the Brigham Young University Translation Research Group. The transcript of the Q&A session "Linked Open Data and the Lexicon" is available here.
