There are currently Wikipedia editions in 264 different languages. Each of these editions contains infoboxes that provide structured data about the topic of the article in which an infobox is contained. The content of infoboxes about the same topic in different Wikipedia editions varies in completeness, coverage and quality. This paper examines the hypothesis that by extracting infobox data from multiple Wikipedia editions and by fusing the extracted data among editions it should be possible to complement data from one edition with previously missing values from other editions and to increase the overall quality of the extracted dataset by choosing property values that are most likely correct in case of inconsistencies among editions. We will present a software framework for fusing RDF datasets based on different conflict resolution strategies. We will apply the framework to fuse infobox data that has been extracted from the English, German, Italian and French editions of Wikipedia and will discuss the accuracy of the conflict resolution strategies that were used in this experiment.
