Description Within the EuroWordNet projects the national wordnets were interlinked with a interlingual index, ILI. In the subsequent Balkanet project, mostly pragmatic decisions stood as the reason for choosing the English as the pivot language instead of ILI. The Global WordNet Grid, as an approach, and the KYOTO project, as an instantiation of this approach, are shifting the idea of the pivot from lexical meanings to real semantics - the languages will be interlinked through the shared ontology. In this paper, we describe the design and implementation of the KYOTO database, which is based on the Dictionary Editor and Browser (DEB) platform. The main ideas and assets of the platform are presented and the necessary additions and adaptation for the needs of the KYOTO project are depicted.
