The ISO 639 family of standards contains codes for the representation of names of languages. The ISO 639-3 sub standard attempts to provide as complete an enumeration of languages as possible, including living, extinct, ancient, and constructed languages, whether major or minor, written or unwritten. SIL International is the official Registration Authority for ISO-639-3.

This page can be used to retrieve the most recent version of ISO-639-3 from SIL and convert it to SKOS. The generated SKOS is suited for uploading to the OpenSKOS platform.

ISOcat (www.isocat.org) is a registry for Data Categories. ISO 12620 data category specifications in the DCR contain linguistic descriptions, such as data category definitions, statements of associated value domains, and examples. The ISOcat DCR provides data export of a subset that is relevant for OpenSKOS: in this export you find only closed and simple DCs from the metadata profile. A closed DC maps to a concept scheme and a simple DC to a SKOSconcept in such a concept scheme.

The CLARIN VLO Organizations vocabulary is constructed on basis of manual curation of organization names extracted from the CLARIN VLO (http://www.clarin.eu/vlo). The original vocabulary is the starting point of manual curation directly in OpenSKOS. Periodic updates from external authoritive sources are therefore irrelevant. For completeness and as documentation the source code of the original converter/SKOS generation module is made available via GitHub: Sources at GitHub.
