Dear Coralie,

Thanks a lot!
This is useful stuff.  I will start fighting with the Japanese characters to put them on the SKOS site...
The good thing is that in the HTML archive I can also see the translations of the Library Linked Data, so we're all set.
By the way Tom, in case you have time to put the LLD translations on the wiki, I wouldn't have any objection ;-)

Cheers,

Antoine
