FRAU (FRAmework of reference for UNL) is a guideline used to describe achievements of natural languages in relation to the UNL. It was inspired by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR), and its main goal is to provide a method for assessing the availability and quality of natural language resources inside the UNL framework.

Reference Levels

FRAU divides languages into three broad divisions which can be divided into six levels:

  • A Basic Level
    • A1 Breakthrough or beginner
    • A2 Waystage or elementary
  • B Intermediate Level
    • B1 Threshold or intermediate
    • B2 Vantage or upper intermediate
  • C Advanced Level
    • C1 Effective Operational
    • C2 Mastery

Descriptors

The descriptors below inform the resources required for a language to be classified in each level:

Level UNL-NL Dictionary NL-UNL Dictionary UNL-NL Grammar NL-UNL Grammar
A1 2,000 2,000 500 500
A2 5,000 5,000 1,000 1,000
B1 10,000 10,000 2,000 2,000
B2 20,000 20,000 3,000 3,000
C1 35,000 35,000 5,000 5,000
