In this talk I will present how semantic technologies can be used and adapted for helping humanists in analyzing and processing digital content. Moreover, I will discuss the related challenges and problems showing some tools and use cases.

Whereas the classic methodology shows limitations in scalability, the new tools often do not adequately reflect the intended semantics and thus deliver unreliable results. Another important issue to be aware of is the communication and understanding between disciplines. Different possibilities will be shown as a first proof of concept for humanities, information science and computer science to overcome the method mismatch and let researchers from different disciplines work ‘on a par’ with another.
