Hi all,

It seems that schema.org <http://schema.org/> as of writing would not allow to express the relation for terms „A is a translation from B“ or „A is an abbreviation from B“. It is already possible to express that A is translation of B, see

http://bib.schema.org/translationOfWork <http://bib.schema.org/translationOfWork>

but this is specific to works, not translated terms. Would the below make sense? It is adapted from 
https://schema.org/translator <https://schema.org/translator>

note: schema:Term and schema:translation do not exist in schema.org, I made them up for the example.

  "@id": "http://example.com/my-term-data-base-entry-1",
  "@type": "schema:Term",
  "schema:inLanguage": "en",
  "schema:name": "screwdriver",
  "schema:translation": {
    "@id": "http://example.com/my-term-data-base-entry-2",
    "schema:inLanguage": "de",
    "schema:name": "schraubendreher"
