Multilingual CoreVocs

Call for review of multilingual translations of Core Vocabularies – Your support needed!

12/10/2018

To enable and extend the use of Core Vocabularies by public administrations across Europe, we would like to make them available in multilingual versions.

Our approach

In a first translation round, the Working Groups had a look at four out of the six Core Vocabularies and translated the labels and descriptions into seven of the 23 official languages of the European Union.

As a next step, our SEMIC experts pre-translated the remaining combinations of Core Vocabularies and language versions by using Google translate. Moreover, we created translations for a more extensive list of properties from the Core Vocabularies. These properties had not been considered during the Working Groups’ first translation round.

How can you get involved?

If you are interested in bringing your language skills to value and participating in the review, please follow the instructions below.

The call for review of translations is open until Friday 26th of October 2018.

THANK YOU for your time and commitment!
