Dear all,

many Semantic Web applications are currently based on SPARQL. In 
particular, an increasing number of systems, such as question answering 
systems, keyword search or search by example internally construct SPARQL 
queries. However, lay users do not understand this language, so it is 
difficult to give the user feedback on what queries the system 
constructed. To address the gap between SPARQL and natural language, the 
AKSW and CITEC groups [1,2] have devised an approach for transforming 
SPARQL queries to natural language.

You (yes, you ^_^) can help us by judging the quality of the 
translations we present in this survey:

http://sparql2nl.aksw.org/eval

The survey can be done by both - SPARQL experts and lay users. For lay 
users, it takes 5 minutes to complete and 15 minutes for experts. In 
addition to the interesting (sometimes challenging) questions, there are 
also great prices to win. 10 randomly selected participants will receive 
Amazon vouchers:

1st price: 200 Euro
2nd price: 100 Euro
3rd price: 50 Euro
4th - 10th price: 25 Euro

If you want to win a price, you need to fill in your name at the end of 
the survey.

Kind regards,

Axel Ngonga, Lorenz Bühmann, Christina Unger, Daniel Gerber and Jens Lehmann
