This paper explores how to discover unexpected information in existing folksonomies (serendipity) using extensive multilingual open source repositories as the underlying knowledge base, overcoming linguistic barriers at the same time. A web application called Flickrpedia is given as a practical example, using Flickr as the folksonomy and diverse natural language Wikipedias as the knowledge base.
