User Interface

For exploring OntoWiktionary, you can use our XSLT based user interface. You can either use the online version on a small subset of the English OntoWiktionary or download the UI and use it with the full OntoWiktionary.

Simply extract the user interface files and open the shipped OntoWiktionary.html file in your browser. You can then load one of OntoWiktionary's data XML files (choose your favorite language from the list above). The following image shows an example of how the English OntoWiktionary edition is displayed in the user interface.
