- Using Wikipedias to Initialize Multilingual Preterminological Lexical Networks
- In this poster, we will show our experiment in initializing a special kind of multilingual lexical resources using Wikipedias, as a source of multilingual terminological knowledge.
- We build a lexical network of terms related to the Silk Road with the help of Wikipedias.
- Basically, we use the URL structure in a Wikipedia article to extract translations of certain term into different languages automatically, the extracted information is stored in a graph structure, where it will be confirmed by other multilingual resources, and ultimately, by contributors.
