Hi Peter,

Our tool, RightField (http://www.rightfield.org.uk), allows you to embed 
ontology term selection into spreadsheets, and to extract these 
selections as RDF. It is designed more for assisting in the data 
collection process (i.e. when users fill in a spreadsheet that has been 
marked-up using RightField, they are automatically collecting 
semantically enriched data).

Our paper from last year's eScience conference describes the RDF 
extraction in more detail:

Systems Biology data using spreadsheets," /E-Science (e-Science), 2012 
IEEE 8th International Conference on/ , vol., no., pp.1-8, 8-12 Oct. 2012

Best wishes,
