We present a new bilingual FrameNet lex- icon for English and German. It is cre- ated through a simple, but powerful ap- proach to construct a FrameNet in any language using Wiktionary as an inter- lingual representation. Our approach is based on a sense alignment of FrameNet and Wiktionary, and subsequent transla- tion disambiguation into the target lan- guage. We perform a detailed evaluation of the created resource and a discussion of Wiktionary as an interlingual connection for the cross-language transfer of lexical- semantic resources. The created resource is publicly available at http://www. ukp.tu-darmstadt.de/fnwkde/.
