I would also recommend @timrdf's csv2rdf4lod conversion automation,

<https://github.com/timrdf/csv2rdf4lod-automation/wiki>

Given csv as a starting point, you should be doing conversions in
under 30mins ;)

BTW: We recently started a project, Elixir <http://bit.ly/wRjQTI>, to
create an easy-to-use Web portal front end for csv2rdf4lod. "Watch
this space..."
