BEINFRAT in the AAT
A first batch of French translations was imported to the Getty AAT in September 2022.
- A SPARQL-query retrieved non-translated concepts from the Getty AAT
- Professional translators translated concepts and descriptions
- Translations were checked by domain experts and sources (e.g. PACTOLS-thesaurus)
The translated concepts include styles, historic periods, materials, objects and so on: croix celtiques, chalcolithique, franco-saxon, néo-impressionisme, limbourgeois, art cinétique etc.
The BEINFRAT-project will contribute to the AAT with the translation of 1000 concepts and scope notes, from English into French.
BEINFRAT is an official contributor to the Getty AAT. A list of AAT contributors can be found here:
