Thanks for reporting these issues. The first one is an important bug and the second should be easy to fix.

Could you please create these issues in the umls2rdf github project ? I will follow up from there.

Subject: 2 small bugs with the umls2rdf tool

Hi all, 


Using the umls2rdf tool ( recently I
noticed 2 small bugs:


1.       In the .ttl file exported, when a string (eg., skos:definition)
contains the characters \" then BioPortal cannot parse the generated files.

2.       skos:prefLabel, skos:altLabel and skos:definition (maybe others)
are generated with @en by default. Which is not the case if the umls2rdf
tool is used to export from UMLS an ontology in another language such as
MSHFRE or MDRFRE which are French. Ideally the script should check the LAT
property of the UMLS source in the MRSAB table


Hope it helps ;)
