Abstract

This paper describes a methodology to identify people with common subjects but different cultures. Each person has a culture and it influences in his way to express himself or to write, etc. Because of that, nowadays, on the Web, it is very difficult a person who writes ’validating enterprise system’ finds another who writes ’attesting B2B solution’ because there are different words. On the other hand, there is a common subject that search engines can not identify, because it is necessary taking into consideration the cultural knowledge and experience from each person. In this context, the methodology presented here intends to consider this cultural information in order to identify when two or more people are talking about the same subject.
