Timelines provide an intuitive way to facilitate an overview of relevant events related to a query entity - i.e. an entity or an event of user interest - over a certain period of time. EventKG+TL is a novel system that generates cross-lingual event timelines using EventKG and facilitates an overview of the language-specific event relevance and popularity along with the cross-lingual differences.
