Fluent Editor 2014
Fluent Editor 2014, an ontology editor, is an
Award Winning comprehensive tool for editing and manipulating
complex ontologies that uses Controlled Natural Language. Fluent Editor provides
one with a more suitable for human users alternative to XML-based OWL editors.
It's main feature is the usage of Controlled English as a knowledge modeling
language. Supported via Predictive Editor, it prohibits one from entering any
sentence that is grammatically or morphologically incorrect and actively helps
the user during sentence writing.
The Controlled English is a subset of Standard English with restricted grammar
and vocabulary in order to reduce the ambiguity and complexity inherent in full
Fluent Editor 2014 is FREE for non-commercial (i.e. personal or academic) usage.
If you want to use it commercially (within your company, enterprise and any other commercial purposes), you need to obtain proper commercial license.

OWL stands for Web Ontology Language (sometimes called Ontology Web Languagea
language). It is developed by the W3C’s Web Ontology Working Group and intended
to be the successor of DAML+OIL. OWL is the most expressive knowledge
representation for the Semantic Web so far. It allows one to write explicit,
formal conceptualizations of human endeavor. OWL can be used in a spectrum of
tasks that appear in the semantic-web applications. It allows describing the
application domain (where formal-semantic plays a crucial role) and application
specification, database schema, database constraints as well as database content
using common language. On the other hand, OWL can be used as a language that
allows domain experts (a person with special knowledge or skills in a particular
area of endeavor) to express domain-specific knowledge (valid knowledge used to
refer to an area of human endeavor).
