Hi! 
It's really nice to have announcements about 2 validation services in the same day :-)

Maybe the fastest way to learn about them is this joint paper?
Osma Suominen and Christian Mader: Assessing and Improving the Quality of SKOS Vocabularies. Journal on Data Semantics, 2013. 
http://www.seco.tkk.fi/publications/2013/suominen-mader-skosquality.pdf

I think we'll try them out on Getty AAT, which could catch some errors, and may provide useful feedback for the tools.
But:
- We use a lot more than SKOS:
  We use SKOS, SKOS-XL, ISO 25964, DC, DCT, BIBO, FOAF, PROV and a custom ontology (GVP = Getty Vocabulary Program)
- the file is fairly large: 1Gb (gzips to 63Mb in 10s).
  We use NTriples because Turtle 1.0 doesn't support numeric localnames (e.g. aat:300012345; Turtle 1.1 does).

Have you tried the tools with such large files? 
Guess there's no option but to install locally (can't use the online services)?
What input formats do the tools support?
Do you have some advice on how to approach this?

Cheers!
