The work presented here is situated in the broader project of creating of multilingual lexical resources with a focus on Asian languages. In the paper, we describe the design of the upper-level we are creating for our multi-lingual lexical resources. Among the current efforts devoted to this issue our work put the focus on (i) the language diversity aiming at massively multi-lingual resource, and (ii) the attention devoted to the ontological design of the upper level.
