What is being proposed on that is not so "far away" then one might
think. There are at least two official projects in that direction (even
more if you search for it - there are also some minor ones by single
1) University of Limerick, Ireland - I may not talk about this as it is
in its beginnings and the creator of the project asked me not to talk
about it for the moment.
2) A commercial project that sees the realisation of such a database in
approx 5 year's time then marekting it and selling it to translator's
(great - our the transator's category has every year less income due to
the market and we shall spend more and more every year due to the
"necessities" of the customers) - more about this in clientside news
(Global Intelligence Newsletter) - sorry I don't have the url here at
These projects are similar and different at the same time - but they
have one common goal: creation of a data repository for
Wikidata already allows to create this - we already have the tools
others are still working on - it is more than just a valid project.
I presume the university will have a look at wikidata as soon as it is
possible and if it is favourable we should consider co-operation between
all these interested parties - of course the commercial side will not be
too fond of this developments.
xml, tmx and tbx play a huge role in this as well - but sorry, it would
go too far to explain all these interactions here right now. If you want
to read more about this please refer to http://www.lisa.org
p.s. Martin, please correct me if there's something wrong in here.
