[ANN] wiktionary.dbpedia.org online - Linked Data, SPARQL and Dumps

Hi lists,

we are proud to announce that we now host the data we extract from
wiktionary publicly on wiktionary.dbpedia.org.

We offer Linked Data: http://wiktionary.dbpedia.org/resource/word
a SPARQL endpoint: http://wiktionary.dbpedia.org/sparql
and N-Triple Dumps: http://downloads.dbpedia.org/wiktionary/

There is also a wiki explaining some details:
http://wiki.dbpedia.org/Wiktionary/

We currently extracted data from the English and German Wiktionary (28M
triples and 3.7M triples), but plan to extend that to at least the
biggest 5 wiktionaries within the next weeks, as our approach focuses on
extendability. The data for each word is structured hierarchically (as
wiktionary is) and contains information about language, part of speech,
definitions, translations, synonyms, hyperonyms and hyponyms etc.
There might be some quality issues, but we want to release early, so
bear with us and report major problems.

Thanks goes to the wiktionary community which does a great job creating
this dataset, and we hope to enable new use cases and consequently
promote the contribution to the wiktionary project.
