Vocabulary Service Multilingual Content Management (VOICE)

Phase 1

Team: Tanja Friedrich
Leader: Tanja Friedrich
Scientific unit: Data Archive for the Social Sciences (DAS)


CESSDA VOICE is directed at improving multilingual vocabulary management for CESSDA products and services. Phase 1 entails the transition process for management and development of the European Language Social Science Thesaurus (ELSST) from UK Data Service to CESSDA ERIC; further improvements in thesaurus content and software; and development of a best practice content translation guide. UK Data Service has the lead in this project with GESIS (DAS) and FSD as lead partners. Plans for future project phases include a more holistic approach to managing and developing multilingual CESSDA vocabularies (Thesauri, Classifications, CVs, Ontologies etc.).
