This work outlines system and usage principles of the ontology-based information extraction system iDocument. Ontology-based information extraction reuses existing domain knowledge for extracting and annotating relevant information from domain-related text. iDocument provides an architecture, an API, and a user interface for supporting users and developers in ontology based knowledge annotation and acquisition tasks. The main contribution of this work is a generic and standardized information extraction template interface for retrieving relevant information from text by using existing domain ontologies.
