Caracciolo, Caterina and Sini, Margherita and Keizer, Johannes Requirements for the treatment of multilinguality in ontologies within FAO., 2007 . In OWLED 2007 Workshop on OWL, Innsbruck (Austria), 6-7 June 2007. [Conference paper]

International organizations like FAO are intrinsically multilingual.
FAO is currently experimenting with semantic-oriented technologies based on ontologies, with the purpose of integrating data across various information systems and providing better services to end users. However, in order for these technologies to be used in real-life scenarios, models and tools for
accommodating and managing multilingual data are needed. This paper analyzes the requirements for the treatment of multilinguality as resulting from
the experience we gained at FAO.
