Ontologies have been frequently employed in order to solve problems derived from the management of shared distributed knowledge and the efficient integration of information across different applications. However, the process of ontology building is still a lengthy and error-prone task. Therefore, a number of research studies to (semi-)automatically build ontologies from existing documents have been developed. In this paper, we present our approach to extract relevant ontology concepts and their relationships from a knowledge base of heterogeneous text documents. We also show the architecture of the implemented system and discuss the experiments in a real-world context.
