Multilingualism in Linked Data

Multilingualism in Linked Data

This video was recorded at W3C Workshop: Making the Multilingual Web Work, Rome 2013. This presentation presents a Linked Data generation process that follows an iterative incremental life cycle model. It covers the following activities: (1) specification: for analyzing and selecting the data sources, (2) modelling: for developing the model that represents the information domain of the data sources, (3) generation: for transforming the data sources into RDF, (4) linking: for creating links between the RDF resources of our dataset and other RDF resources, of external datasets, (5) publication: for publishing the model, RDF resources, and links generated, and (6) exploitation: for developing applications that consume the dataset in question. The presentation addresses each of these activities and its constituent tasks and the techniques, technologies, and tools available for reuse in a multilingual scenario. It will also present how multilingualism is present in the different activities of the linked data life cycle from specification through to maintenance and use.
