An Introduction to the Semantic Web, Considerations for building multilingual Semantic Web sites and applications

Carroll, Jeremy J.


Keyword(s): semantic web; language; internationalization; RDF; OWL

Abstract: This paper gives a brief overview of the Semantic Web standards, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and the Web Ontology Language (OWL). The emphasis is on the representation of natural language information within these standards, particularly: encoding of language identification, use of embedded XHTML, use of natural language labels for concepts in multiple languages, use of internationalized resource identifiers, and query using language information. Some problems are identified, such as: counting in OWL, locale and culture. The target reader knows little about the Semantic Web, but is well-versed in software internationalization and localization.
