Multilingual Thesauri for the Modern World - No Ideal Solution?
Jorna, Kerstin; Davies, Sylvie
Journal of Documentation, v57 n2 p284-95 Mar 2001
Discusses thesauri as tools for multilingual information retrieval and cross-cultural communication. Considers the need for multilingual thesauri and the importance of explicit conceptual structures, and introduces a pilot thesaurus, InfoDEFT (Information Deutsch-English-Francais Thesaurus), as a possible model for new online thesauri which are semantically structured, encyclopedic, and multilingual.
