Legal Language Resources

Given the multilingual nature of Lynx compliance services, a sound basis of language resources of the legal domain needs to be shaped. Such language resources are to be used to annotate, classify and translate the legal documents that will be part of the Legal Knowledge Graph.

Since the value of the resources increases when connected, a first approach of a Linguistic Legal Linked Open Data cloud has been generated. This cloud gathers linguistic resources in several languages. Most of them are modelled in RDF, but some others are available in different formats. In the same way, resources in the legal domain were a priority. However, certain language resources belonging to other areas of study have also been considered relevant.
