Abstract

The Internet provides the opportunity to implement the real seamless communications over different geographic domains. However, when they cope with the network level challenges, they encounter the context and cultural level challenges. Therefore, we have developed Intercultural Collaboration System with Semantic Information Share Function. This system is a multilingual conferencing system. This system consists of three functions Spark2 for shared workspace, AnnoChat for chat communication tool and TalkGear2 for audio and video communication tool. The system has a semantic information share function and a translation function.
