In this paper, we present an attempt to build a semantic-based multilingual Islamic Finance thesaurus, with the aim of globally standardizing the use of Islamic Finance concepts and providing a rich, semantically sound terminology.
We describe a semantic model, which uses international standards such as Simple Knowledge Organization System, a World Wide Web Consortium recommendation designed among others for representation of thesauri, with the aim of enabling easy publication of the thesaurus as part of Linked Data and efficient future use. Finally, we present an Islamic Finance thesaurus collaborative authoring tool, which allows people around the world to contribute in improving the Islamic Finance thesaurus by adding, modifying or deleting concepts, relationships between the concepts or descriptions.
