As databases become widely used, there is a growing need to translate information between multiple databases. Semantic interoperability and integration has been a long standing challenge for the database community and has now become a prominent area of database research. In this paper, the authors aim to answer the question how semantic interoperability between two databases can be achieved by using Formal Concept Analysis (FCA for short) and Information Flow (IF for short) theories. For their purposes, firstly, they discover knowledge from different databases by using FCA, and then align what is discovered by using IF and FCA.
