Abstract
The INTERA and ECHO projects were partly intended to create a critical mass of open and linked metadata descriptions of language

resources, helping researchers to understand the benefits of an increased visibility of language resources in the Internet and motivating

them to participate. The work was based on the new IMDI version 3.0.3 which is a result of experiences with the earlier versions and

new requirements coming from the involved partners. While in INTERA major data centers in Europe are participating, the ECHO

project focuses on resources that can be seen as part of cultural heritage. Currently, 27 institutions and projects are active with the goal

metadata is not trivial and asks for a considerable amount of effort and skills, since manual work alone is too time consumin (Less)
