Hi Renato,

Feel free to have a look at these ontologies, depending on Dublin Core Elements and Terms, FOAF and SKOS:
http://eulersharp.sourceforge.net/2003/03swap/countries
http://eulersharp.sourceforge.net/2003/03swap/languages
They were created in 2009 and have been updated a few times since.
You can browse them as .html.
ISO639-3 or other typed codes can be added.

Regards,
Hans
