1 Using OLIF, The Open Lexicon Interchange Format Susan McCormick OLIF2 Consortium October 1, 2004

2 The OLIF Format The Open Lexicon Interchange Format The Open Lexicon Interchange Format XML-compliant standard XML-compliant standard Supports exchange of lexical and terminological data for language technology applications Supports exchange of lexical and terminological data for language technology applications Handles basic exchange as well as more complex applications such as MT lexicons Handles basic exchange as well as more complex applications such as MT lexicons

3 The OLIF2 Consortium OLIF v.2 was developed by the OLIF2 Consortium, a group of language technology companies and organizations interested in issues of MT data/term data exchange OLIF v.2 was developed by the OLIF2 Consortium, a group of language technology companies and organizations interested in issues of MT data/term data exchange Led by SAP Led by SAP Members include Xerox, Microsoft, Trados, IBM, Systran, IAI, DFKI and Comprendium Members include Xerox, Microsoft, Trados, IBM, Systran, IAI, DFKI and Comprendium

4 Developing OLIF v.2 Based on OLIF prototype Based on OLIF prototype Developed in EC-funded OTELO project – proposing standards for users of disparate language tools Developed in EC-funded OTELO project – proposing standards for users of disparate language tools Original purpose of OLIF was to facilitate terminology exchange for industrial users of MT Original purpose of OLIF was to facilitate terminology exchange for industrial users of MT

5 Developing OLIF v.2 Version 2 adapted from OLIF prototype using input from Version 2 adapted from OLIF prototype using input from Developers/users of 3+ MT systems Developers/users of 3+ MT systems Developers/users of terminology management systems Developers/users of terminology management systems Other language standards projects: Other language standards projects: EAGLES EAGLES SALT SALT ISLE ISLE MARTIF, TBX MARTIF, TBX

6 OLIF Version 2 Released as open standard in 2002 XML-compliant XML-compliant Covers 6 European languages Covers 6 European languages English, German, French, Spanish, Danish, Portuguese English, German, French, Spanish, Danish, Portuguese Includes options for modeling administrative, morphological, syntactic and semantic data Includes options for modeling administrative, morphological, syntactic and semantic data

8 The OLIF File Follows Terminology Markup Framework (TMF) structure: Header Header Body Body Shared resources Shared resources

9 The OLIF Entry Collection of monolingual data on a specified sense of a word or phrase Optional links for cross-reference and transfer Optional links for cross-reference and transfer Transfer is bilingual and unidirectional Transfer is bilingual and unidirectional Multiple transfers in multiple languages possible for single word sense Multiple transfers in multiple languages possible for single word sense

10 Key Data Categories The OLIF entry is uniquely identified by 5 key data categories: The OLIF entry is uniquely identified by 5 key data categories: Canonical form Canonical form Language Language Part of speech Part of speech Subject field Subject field Semantic reading Semantic reading

15 Data Category Values Allowed values specified by OLIF Allowed values specified by OLIF Administrative, terminological, linguistic values based on Administrative, terminological, linguistic values based on General industry standards General industry standards E.g., allowed values for date derived from recommendations from ISO 8601:1988 E.g., allowed values for date derived from recommendations from ISO 8601:1988 MT/Terminology standards MT/Terminology standards E.g., suggested values for subject field adapted from EC E.g., suggested values for subject field adapted from EC Widely-recognized linguistic standards Widely-recognized linguistic standards E.g., allowed values for gender based on longstanding gender description for European languages E.g., allowed values for gender based on longstanding gender description for European languages

16 User Extensions: The OLIF Data Category Registry Users may declare and use their own values for certain data categories: Users may declare and use their own values for certain data categories: Subject field Subject field Semantic reading Semantic reading Morphological structure Morphological structure Part of speech Part of speech Inflection Inflection Aspect Aspect Syntactic type Syntactic type Syntactic frame Syntactic frame Semantic type Semantic type Concept hierarchy Concept hierarchy

17 Organizing Based on Concept Users may link monolingual entries via a concept identifier Users may link monolingual entries via a concept identifier These IDs can be used to organize entries as equivalent word senses associated with the same concepts rather than source word senses associated with transfers. These IDs can be used to organize entries as equivalent word senses associated with the same concepts rather than source word senses associated with transfers.
