Abstract : Ontology indexes and repositories are important in the realization of the Semantic Web; however, the need has clearly moved to multilingual capabilities that are hard to offer when dealing with multiple ontologies, originally in different formats and contributed by an open community. In this paper, we present a roadmap for addressing the issues of dealing with multilingual or monolingual ontologies in BioPortal, the reference ontology repository in biomedicine, currently mostly English-oriented. We propose a set of representations to support multilingualism in the portal and to enable a complete use of the functionalities and services for any kind of ontologies and data. While encouraging the community to use the best available specifications to represent multilingual content e.g., Lemon; our objective is to handle multilingualism in a proper semantically rich and consistent manner in the ontology repository. We are currently deploying and implementing these representations in a local instance of BioPortal for French ontologies.
