Part of the Semantic Web and Beyond book series (ADSW, volume 9)


Typical information infrastructures manage different terminological ontologies with a very different levels of specificity, language coverage integrated in their systems (e.g., from monolingual lists of terms to multilingual thesauri covering more than 20 languages), formalization, (e.g., from simple glossaries to well-structured thesauri), or size, (e.g., AGROVOC thesaurus [126] contains more than 16,000 concepts).
