In this paper we describe an extension of the MoKi tool able to support the management of multilingual ontologies. The multilingual features of MoKi are based on an integration with Dictionary Based Translation ad Machine Translation technologies. Also the collaborative features of MoKi are used to support the interaction between domain experts in order to discuss and agree on the translations of the terms to be used in each language.
