Most Semantic Web technology-based applications need users to have a deep background on the formal underpinnings of ontology languages and some basic skills in these technologies. Generally, only experts in the field meet these requirements. In this paper, we present OWLPath, a natural language-query editor guided by multilanguage OWL-formatted ontologies. This application allows nonexpert users to easily create SPARQL queries that can be issued over most existing ontology storage systems. Our approach is a fully fledged solution backed with a proof-of-concept implementation and the empirical results of two challenging use cases: one in the domain of e-finance and the other in e-tourism.
