Multilingual datasets

Jeroen Weesie
Utrecht University
Abstract.   This insert describes a new command mlanguage that facilitates the creation and maintenance of “comprehensive” multilingual datasets. These are datasets with many variables, many of which are value labeled, with labels in different languages, all contained within the dataset. The tools make it easy to add labels in a new language by translating an existing set of labels, to switch between the sets of labels, to verify the integrity of such labels, and to assist in keeping the labels complete.
