MARC records, Dublin Core and MARC relator


I have a huge MARCXML file with 32000+ record I’d like to import to Omeka S.

This is a bibliographic dataset which focuses on translations of books. This is a sample record:

<marc:leader>00706nam a2200229Ka 4500</marc:leader>
<marc:controlfield tag="001">67</marc:controlfield>

<marc:datafield tag="956" ind1=" " ind2=" "></marc:datafield>

I am using MarcEdit for exporting the MARCXML file into a .csv file, which I’ll the use for importing into Omeka. Am I right in thinking that I’m better off using the Dublin Core standard, plus the MARC relator vocabulary (, which I’m also adding to my Omeka S installation? This is so I can tag things like translator, original language, original title, and stuff like that.

If so, shall I use any specific prefix, or is it up to me?

Thank you in advance to anyone willing to help.
