As the amount of cultural data avail-able on the Semantic Web is expanding,the demand of accessing this data inmultiple languages is increasing. Previ-ous work on multilingual access to cul-tural heritage information has shownthat mapping from ontologies to nat-ural language requires at least twodifferent steps: (1) mapping multilin-gual metadata to interoperable knowl-edge sources; (2) assigning multilin-gual knowledge to cultural data. Thispaper presents our work on makingcultural heritage content available onthe Semantic Web and accessible in 15languages. The objective of our work isboth to form queries and to retrieve se-mantic content in multiple languages.We describe our experiences with pro-cessing museum data extracted fromtwo different sources, harmonizing thisdata and making its content accessiblein natural language.
