Abstrakt

Internationalization of identification names, for cities for instance, bears two major problems: which language to choose for the label and which character set to choose for those characters that are not covered by the ASCII character set. UbisLabel is a new approach to combine ideas for internationalizing the labels for identifiers on the Semantic Web and the Web in general. We introduce an inline syntax to put several, possibly multilingual labels into one string. UderscoreEncoding is able to represent the full Unicode code points shorter than existing textual UTF representations. It has been developed in order to represent special characters in an efficient manner without using any characters apart from alphanumerical letters plus the underscore only. The idea is that such encoded labels can be attached directly to the identifiers (like URIs) without the need to be further encoded elsewhere in the Internet.
