multi-lingualization of EOLSS using UNL
The UNL-EOLSS Project was an attempt to make the EOLSS available in multiple languages during 2007 and 2008. It started with the six official languages of the UN and Japanese. Language centers that are responsible for the languages participated in the project. Through this project, 25 academic articles were selected from the EOLSS, enconverted into UNL, and are available to view in other languages through the UNL Explorer.
More information on the project is available at http://www.undl.org/unl-eolss/.
UNL Documents of these articles are available at http://www.undl.org/unl-eolss/unldoc.html.
The UNL Explorer can be used at www.undl.org/unlexp/. To view these articles are possible by title, keyword or content search, or through navigation of the UNL Ontology.
Common Web Language (CWL)
The CWL (Common Web Language) is a common language for exchanging information through the web and also for enabling computers to process information semantically. It is used to describe the semantic structures of contents and meta-data of web pages written in natural languages. The purpose of the CWL is to realize a language barrier free world in the web and enable computers to extract semantic information and knowledge from web pages accurately.
The activity to develop the CWL started as a mission of the Common Web Language Incubator Group of the W3C. A large number of researches from universities and research institutes are engaging in the research and development of the CWL.

Semantic Computing (SeC) and Concept Description Language (CDL)
Semantic Computing aims at an intelligent and creative infrastructure in computers. The CDL (Concept Description Language) is a language to describe various semantic relations between various kinds of media and contents, and conceptual structures of contents for realizing the infrastructure. A large number of researches from universities and research institutes are engaging in the research and development of the CDL under the organization of the Institute of Semantic Computing.
