The main objective of Esperonto is to provide a bridge between the current web and the Semantic Web (SW). The project aims at constructing a service that offers to content provider tools and techniques to publish their (existing and new) content on the SW, independently of their native language. Once available on the SW, the content becomes accessible for software agents and other applications like intelligent navigation, visualization, filtering, and aggregation.
