Using Linguistic Resource for Cross-Lingual Ontology Alignment
In the Semantic Web register, ontology alignment process can be seen as a cornerstone solution for the data heterogeneousness by allowing their interoperability. However, the most of the existing alignment methods assume that all ontologies to be aligned are described by identical languages. Indeed, very few approaches paid attention to the thriving challenge of multilingual ontology alignment. This paper introduces a new alignment method for multilingual ontologies. The proposed method implements a strategy of a direct alignment based on an external resource. Results obtained after extensive carried experiments are very encouraging and highlight many useful insights about the new proposed method.
