I just started to know Wordnet. I installed it, and with the JWI library, wrote a little class able to return the synonyms, in English, of a given word.

However, I want more than that. I wish to be able to obtain something like this: the synomims for the word "X" in the language "Y".

I searched information about it. I found a very interesting website which can be part of the answer: OpenMultilingualWordnet

In this website, it is possible to get data files (TAB and LMF files) with the information in several languages (one file per language).

The problem is that I don't know how to use these files? Is there any way to integrate/add these files to wordnet? Is there a Java API able to access and interpret TAB/LMF files like JWI interpret Wordnet files?

Is there any other solution that I am not thinking on to achieve my goal?


Best regards.
