In order to utilize general knowledge of top Ontology for effective reasoning by domain Ontology, this paper studies translating of top Ontology expression from OWL Full to OWL DL, such as SUMO and OpenCyc. Problems appeared during definition translating of classes, properties and instances are handled to make the translated top Ontology accordant to the OWL DL language.

Key wordsTop Ontology      OWL-based transformation between different sublanguages      OWL Full      OWL DL
