Dear Omar,

  thanks for the use case you are proposing. This seems to be a use case 
on exploiting the ontology to provide better translations? As Elena 
Montiel is also working on a ontology-based translation use case, it 
would be good if you both could work on merging the two use cases into one.

Best regards,
