----------------------- REVIEW 1 ---------------------
TITLE: Using WikiData to create a multi-lingual multi-dialectal dictionary for Arabic dialects
AUTHORS: Houcemeddine Turki, Denny Vrandečić, Helmi Hamdi and Imed Adel

Overall evaluation: 1 (weak accept)

----------- Overall evaluation -----------
It is an interesting work with valid assumption and its proposed ideas also in line with the expectation of the event. Overall, I think, this paper is interesting and has good contribution to this topic. However, the authors are advised to have the following points on their revised version:
-Please elaborate in details about the proposed approach with more focusing on the relations between its components, as they are the core of the solution and need more justification of why to use them.
-Overall technical exposition must be strengthened with more concrete examples.
-The authors are urged to summarize and list the key observations from the paper.
-The paper is readable but a language improvement using a native speaker is recommended.
-Some minor editorial issue, like enhancing the plots quality, the equations, etc...
-Many reference are with *incomplete* bibliographic information (like lack of publication venue, for instance). This must be corrected.

In summery, it a well prepared paper.

----------------------- REVIEW 2 ---------------------
TITLE: Using WikiData to create a multi-lingual multi-dialectal dictionary for Arabic dialects
AUTHORS: Houcemeddine Turki, Denny Vrandečić, Helmi Hamdi and Imed Adel

Overall evaluation: 0 (borderline paper)

----------- Overall evaluation -----------
The paper technical content is very marginal, the paper has many language and editorial issue,
a better results presentation and figs quality are needed. i guess the paper is not ready for publication yet.

Other issues to be considered too:

- The paper lacks clarity in motivating the proposed research and in stating its expected outcome
- the review of the state of the art lacks an analysis of the existing work and the positioning of the research in the state of the art
- The methodology is too general and does not convincingly show the feasibility of the proposed approach
- the research lacks a concrete illustration on a case study.

recommendation to the authors
- to clearly state the objective of the research in terms of problems to address and expected results and show how the proposed research will advance the state of the art by
overcoming the limitations of the existing work
- to preset an analysis of the state of the art and discuss the benefits/limitations of the existing approaches with respect to the addressed research problem
- to be more precise in the description of the methodology and show how the methodology would achieve the stated objectives
- to discuss the future plans with respect to the research state of progress and its limitations

There is serious issue with many editorials in the paper that need to be fixed, many of the figs are fuzzy and need to be reconsidered again.
