Abstract
The unavoidable symbiosis between ontologies andnatural language has proven more and more relevant onthe light of the growing interest and application of Semantic Web technologies. Ontologies that are well-documented in a natural language not only provide humans with a better understanding of theworld model they represent, but also a better exploitation by the systems that may use them. In the current scenario of the Semantic Web, ontologies are produced by users all over the world and consumed by applications that interoperate with texts indifferent natural languages. Multilingualism becomes then a crucial issue that needs to be examined at several stages of the ontology development process.In this work we approach multilingualism at the initial phase of knowledge acquisition for ontology modeling from experts, and at a later stage of enriching the ontology with multilingual information. Both approaches aim at bringing ontologies closer to average users coming from different linguistic andcultural communities, being this a fundamental requirement for the consolidation of the Semantic Web.
