Hello Nick,

Yeah, owl:sameAs is one of solutions. We can use a list of languages on the left
side menu of Wikipedia to find the same things in different languages though
I do not know if Wikipedia API allows to get them.

I am not sure about the German Wikipedia, but the Japanese Wikipedia has many
resources not in the English WIkipedia. So I guess the German Wikipedia has
the same issue as well. It is not enough to use only the English Wikipedia.
