Thanks for this Timea.

For me, when we say going from XML to RDF it consists on transforming XML instances into RDF individuals.

I hope we do not plan to derive an RDF model/ontology from XML (xsd or fomr its instances). I know there has been attempts to do this in the past but for me this doesn't work.

Transforming the data model, which can be more or less apparent from the xsd, requires to step back and translate that model into an ontology. It is only after this work has been done that data can be mapped. And only if this has been done correctly can you go back and forth e.g. xml-rdf-xml

Is it a common understanding?

Best regards,

This is about mapping XML of a dictionary data to RDF.
