The LRE Metadata Application profile supports the use of multilingual vocabularies. Multilingual controlled vocabularies make it possible to automate translation work for learning resources that have been indexed in one language. Therefore, the use of multilingual vocabularies enhances interoperability.

The most extensive of these multilingual vocabularies is the LRE Thesaurus (formerly known as ETB Thesaurus). This vocabulary describes the subject of a learning resource and is continuously used in the European Schoolnet’s services.

The scope of the LRE Thesaurus is:

  • Content of multimedia educational materials
  • Content of teaching, guidance, evaluation and administration supporting materials

 

THE MOST UP TO DATE VERSION of the LRE Thesaurus is managed in the Vocabulary Bank for Education (VBE).  

Instructions: Browse to the list of vocabularies in the VBE and scroll to the bottom where you can click on the LRE Thesaurus.  Clicking on each node or term will display available translations on the right hand side.  Clicking on the plus sign will expand the list to reveal narrower terms.  Related terms and equivalents will appear on the right hand side of the screen.  The availability of related terms and translations is indicated by the presence of a plus sign.

The VBE provides both a browsable and searchable web application for users to locate, view and download terminology, as well as standards-based machine to machine interfaces. In the VBE, the LRE Thesaurus is available in Danish, Czech, German, Greek, English, Spanish, Finnish, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Dutch, Polish and Swedish.
