Semantic Web Linker

The Semantic Web Linker (SWL) is a framework for helping Name Entity Recognition (NER) procedures. The strength of the SWL is the integration of data coming from different Web sources, such as Wikipedia and DBpedia. The SWL also provides a multilingual repository, in the sense that every entity is asso- ciated to its synonyms and translations in many languages. Furthermore, the SWL manages a classification of entities through their hierarchical categorization.
