English-Latvian EASTIN-CL Multilingual Ontology of Assistive Technology

EASTIN-CL Multilingual Ontology of Assistive Technology has been provided for the European Language Resources Coordination Action (ELRC) (http://lr-coordination.eu/) by Tilde, member of EASTIN-CL Consortium with primary data licensed under "CC-BY-SA 3.0" (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/).

EASTIN-CL Multilingual Ontology of Assistive Technology was created within the EASTIN-CL project aimed at applying language technologies to portal of assistive technologies http://www.eastin.eu to enhance it and it more accessible for people in different languages.

Based on Multilingual Ontology a query tool was built allowing users of the portal to type the lookup words which are then mapped to assistive device product classes.

The terminology resource was created by first selecting base terminology in English, then having domain experts translate it into 6 other languages.
