Sure.

As an example, please goto the following SPARQL endpoint:

     http://dbpedia.org/sparql

and cut/paste the next query into it:

     select * where
     { <http://dbpedia.org/resource/Seine> ?p ?o . filter (lang(?o) =  
'fr') }


Which returns the specific French information of this topic like:

     http://dbpedia.org/ontology/abstract

     La Seine est un fleuve français, long de 777 kilomètres, qui  
coule dans le
     Bassin parisien et arrose notamment Troyes, Paris et Rouen. Sa  
source se situe
     à 446 mètres d'altitude à Source-Seine, sur le plateau de  
Langres en Côte-d'Or.
     Son cours a une orientation générale du sud-est au nord-ouest.  
Elle se jette
     dans la Manche, à hauteur du méridien du Hode, près du Havre.  
Son bassin
     versant, d'une superficie de 78 650 km², intéresse près de 30 %  
de la
     population du pays. Il est géré par l'agence de l'eau Seine- 
Normandie.


Also when you set your preferred language in your browser to FR, you  
also can use this link:

	http://dbpedia.org/page/Seine

and see both the language specific data, as well as the generic  
information.


Best regards,

Patrick
