This paper describes a Multilingual Open Data corpus for European languages that was built in scope of the MODEL project. We describe the approach chosen to select data sources, which data sources were used, how the source data was handled, what tools were used and what data was obtained in the result of the project. Obtained data quality is presented, and a summary of challenges and chosen solutions are described, too. This paper may serve as a guide and reference in case someone might try to do something similar, as well as a guide to the new open data obtained.
