In this paper, the language independence of DOM-Sortze for creating Educational Ontologies from electronic textbooks is tested. DOM-Sortze has been designed to be language and domain independent. Initially, it was tested with documents written in the Basque language. In this work, DOM-Sortze has been enhanced to deal with the English language. In addition, the benefit of incorporating Wikipedia as a knowledge source in the elicitation process of the Educational Ontology is also considered. The obtained results confirm the language independence of this approach.
