Abstract

Ontologies formally represent domain concepts and their relationships to express data semantics. Ontology mappings are relevant to integrate heterogeneous data sources and to facilitate data exchange between systems. The automatic creation of mappings requires a matching procedure to identify related semantic concepts. The automated cross-lingual matching is still an open research challenge. The distinct syllabic alphabets hamper the straightforward use of string-based similarity techniques. In this scientific initiation project we investigate a novel technique to align ontologies described in different natural language. We will explore automatic translation and semantic similarity measures based on background knowledge. Expected results will allow the automatic creation of mappings between ontologies of different idioms. (AU)
