[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from yuki

Hi, Michael,

Thank you for your support.
First, I will try to specify the English label with SKOS preferred label.
Currently, I’m preparing for the public from private of my ontology.
However, I think a tree with mixed languages is not useful for users.
If the above problem is not solved, then, I will make an English version and a Japanese version next and manage the ontologies.

Kind regards,

> Thank you for your patience with this issue. It took me some digging into our code to figure out the cause of the problem. Unfortunately, at this point there is only one solution you can implement on your end:

> <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="en">Eales disease</skos:prefLabel>
> <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="es">Enfermedad de Eales</skos:prefLabel>
> <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="fr">Maladie d'Eales</skos:prefLabel>
> <skos:prefLabel xml:lang="it">Malattia di Eales</skos:prefLabel>
> Unfortunately, even this isn’t a 100% solution, as our the search indexing algorithm still doesn’t pick the correct label, even with the SKOS prefLabel property in place. I’ve created an issue in our Github tracking system that provides additional details and possible action items on our end to address this:
