Within the context of the European research project "Monnet", which implements among other activities ontology-based multilingual information extraction, we tackle the the issue of recognizing variants of concept labels in business reports that guide the information extraction process. In this short paper, we describe two related experiments in finding variants of multilingual taxonomy labels used in business reporting across distinct reporting legislations and languages. A core taxonomy developed by the XBRL-Europe Association provides a starting point, as we map multilingual term variant candidates we extract from the web presence of relevant players in the field of business reporting to its labels.
