MultiWiki: Semantic-based Text Passage Extraction and Alignment for Interlingual Article Pairs in Wikipedia

MultiWiki is a graphical Web user interface that presents semantic-based text passage extraction and alignment across the interlingual article pairs in Wikipedia. This approach enables identification and interlinking of text passages written in different languages and containing overlapping information with respect to a common topic. Semantic-based text passage alignment can enable Wikipedia editors and readers to better understand language-specific context of entities and events, provide valuable insides in cultural differences, and build a basis for qualitative analysis of Wikipedia articles.
