The UNL System

The UNL System was conceived to support multilingual services in Internet being an alternative to the classical machine translation systems. The UNL System is based in the creation of documents written in an unique computational language able to represent concepts and their relations. The definition of this language has been possible thanks to the collaboration of more than one hundred people, prestigious researchers, and scientists of all around the world. The purpose of the UNL is to break the linguistic barriers in Internet that avoid the real global access to the knowledge and culture for all people. Since the starting of the UNL project in 1996, the participants in the project from initially 14 languages have made substantial progress in the technical as well as the organizational aspects involved. This demonstration will show to the academic and business communities the current state and practical achievements of the UNL system
