Hello Fumi,

I am not sure what the best approach to this would be. My concern is that
things in the English Wikiepdia and the Japanese Wikipedia are the same
things, just with different names. I guess owl:sameAs between the languages
would one one solution.

Does the full-fat dbpedia contain resources that (for example) are in the
German Wikipeida but not the English Wikipedia?
