I am not sure if it is a best practice, but I would tend to
modularize as much as possible:
- you ontology in one file (or several, with one that imports
everything): eg myOntology.owl
- each language-specific in a separate file that imports the ontology
one: myOntology-en.owl, myOntology-fr.owl, myOntology-de.owl, ... each
one imports myOntology.owl
