Multiple RDF schemas can be found for the educational domain resulting in the lack of interoperability. So, translating RDF descriptions is mandatory if a user wants to request multiple descriptions using multiple schemas even if one doesn't know that different schemas exist. RDF descriptions are based on RDF schemas so, the translations of descriptions may be deduced from the translations of schemas. But, transforming one schema into another must be done while preserving the meaning of the schemas. This paper describes TransRDF(S) a tool allowing semi-automatic translation of RDF schemas allowing automatic translation of RDF descriptions, preserving the semantics.
