Interests to realize semantic frames data- bases as a stable starting point in develop- ing semantic knowledge based systems exists in countries such as Germany (the Salsa project), England (the PropBank pro- ject), United States (the FrameNet project), Spain, Japan, etc. I thus propose to create a semantic frame database for Romanian, similar to the FrameNet database. Since creating language resources demands many temporal, financial and human resources, a possible solution could be the import of standardized annotation of a resource de- veloped for a specific language to other languages. This paper presents such a method for the importing of the FrameNet annotation from English to Romanian.
