Abstract: In this paper, we discuss the issue of implementing the interoperability of natural language annotation tools for text mining with the Unstructured Information Management Architecture (UIMA). In particular, we discuss the practical issue of designing UIMA annotation schemes for text mining applications based on our experience in the EC BOOTStrep Project. Currently, a major obstacle to the efficient integration of existing annotation tools for text mining is their lack of interoperability. Many such tools have been developed in different projects following different theoretical approaches and annotation schemes, hence they are highly specialized. Consequently, much effort and time are being wasted in adjusting and modifying existing tools to make them interoperable, or even worse, in “re-inventing the wheel”. Our experience shows that UIMA provides a practical way of implementing interoperability for tools, but there are some practical issues to be tackled. Particularly, we found it a challenging task to design a common/shared UIMA annotation scheme for different sets of tools. A practical and flexible approach to solve such problems is required.
