Abstract:With the emergence of non-English Linked Datasets, discrepancy in language has become a major obstacle for cross-lingual access of resources in the Semantic Web. To prevent non-English monolingual Linked Datasets to form `islands' in the Web of Data, it is suggested to enrich a further layer of multilingual information on the Linked Open Data cloud. In the domain of culture heritage, enriching cross-lingual information can enhance the multilingual retrieval of cultural heritage resources, and promote international communication in the field. In this article, methods to enrich cross-lingual information for Linked Data are summarized, with a review on the cultural heritage domain. The mobile App Demo, Learn Chinese Surnames, winning the Shanghai Library Open Data Application Development Contest on 2016, is then introduced as a case study, to present the practice of enriching English-described information on a Chinese genealogical Linked Dataset, through consuming multilingual sources in the Linked Open Data cloud. Further in the data validation and conclusion, the issues of data quality and experience of consuming Linked Data are summarized.
