Abstract

In this article we present Termontospider, a wiki crawler that optimally traverses Wikipedia in search of domain-specific texts for extracting terminological and ontological information. The crawler is part of a tool suite for automatically developing multilingual termontological databases, i.e. ontologically-underpinned multilingual terminological databases. The focus is on analyzing the best value for internal links, categories and other metadata to assign weights and search mechanisms in network traversal.
