Hi, I'm Francis Malina the creator of Unilexicon, a free and open platform that helps you manage taxonomies and classifications. I know from experience that taxonomy work can be complex and time-consuming, and that's why I've designed Unilexicon with a focus on user experience. When you use Unilexicon, you can spend less time working on technical complexities and more time focusing on the important human aspects of taxonomy work, like finding the right concepts and defining their relationships.
I believe that good design is about decreasing cognitive load and making complex tasks feel intuitive and easy. That's why Unilexicon handles the heavy technical aspects for you, like handling XML serialization, storing RDF triples, and generating unique concept IDs. For example by default, Unilexicon generates human-readable, hyphenated concept slugs instead of using GUIDs or numerical IDs, so your SKOS XML is legible and easy to work with while drag-and-drop visual sorting and relationship representation helps ensure correctness and reduces the chance of mistakes.
I'm always looking for ways to make Unilexicon better, and I do rely on your feedback to prioritise tasks. To send suggestions for new features, ideas for improving the platform, or just want to say hello, please reach out to me at email@example.com. By using Unilexicon, you're not just getting access to a powerful taxonomy management tool, you're also joining a community of taxonomists and knowledge workers who are committed to building a better, more connected world.
