Multilinguality in ontologies has become an impending need for institutions worldwide with valuable linguistic re- sources in different natural languages. Since most ontologies are developed in one language, obtaining multilingual on- tologies implies to localize or adapt them to a concrete language and culture com- munity. As the adaptation of the ontology conceptualization demands considerable efforts, we propose to modify the ontol- ogy terminological layer, and provide a model called Linguistic Information Re- pository (LIR) that associated to the on- tology meta-model allows terminological layer localization.
