Description

VocBench (a.k.a. "The Workbench", "CS WorkBench", "AOS", "Agricultural Ontology Server" or "ACSW") is a web-based, multilingual, vocabulary editing and workflow tool.

Originally created to manage AGROVOC, a multi-lingual thesaurus with 40000 concepts in over 20 languages, it now hosts an ever-expanding set of vocabularies.

Users can register and become trusted editors with admin approval, or enter as visitors and simply navigate data. VocBench supports many different user roles, all with different and fine-grained rights.
