English Abstract: 

"EuroVoc is a multilingual thesaurus which was originally built up specifically for processing the documentary information of the EU institutions.
It is a multi-disciplinary thesaurus covering fields which are sufficiently wide-ranging to encompass both Community and national points of view, with a certain emphasis on parliamentary activities. EuroVoc is a controlled set of vocabulary which can be used outside the EU institutions, particularly by parliaments.
The aim of the thesaurus is to provide the information management and dissemination services with a coherent indexing tool for the effective management of their documentary resources and to enable users to carry out documentary searches using controlled vocabulary.
The EuroVoc ontology is an extension of SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) - W3C recommendation, including appendix B, SKOS eXtension for Labels (SKOS-XL)."
