Language independent

the resource or service is not dependent on a specific language


ColTime: Collaboration on Time-Based Resources


An extension of ELAN and ANNEX for the annotation and display of time‐based resources such as audio and video with a referencing and note exchanging system.


EXILSEA: Exploiting ISOcat's Language Sections in ELAN and ANNEX


Enhancements of the multimedia annotation tool ELAN and the accompanying ANNEX browser for users of different languages with the multilingual features of ISOCAT.


SignLinC: Linking lexical databases and annotated corpora of signed


The core of SignLinC consists of enhancements for LEXUS 3.0 and ELAN 4.0, both released at the start of 2011.


Additions to ELAN include the following:


ARBIL is a data management tool with as its main function a flexible (IMDI/CMDI) metadata editor. It allows to choose an existing CMDI metadata schema/profile from the CMDI registry and create instantiations of that schema. The editor allows the use of tables and copy and paste to exchange information between the tables. ARBIL is ideally suited for situations where multiple different metadata schema are used. ARBIL needs to be installed on the local computer.


ISOcat is data category registry according to the ISO12620 model. It was chosen by CLARIN to serve as a semantic registry to overcome semantic interoperability issues with CMDI metadata and different annotation tag sets used for linguistic annotation.


The VLO is a faceted browser that shows the metadata records harvested from within the CLARIN joint metadata domain. Next to that it also shows part of the Language Resource metadata that can be harvested from the OLAC domain.


Enhancement of the multimedia annotation tool ELAN and the accompanying ANNEX browser to create an appropriate multilayer visualization of multilayer collocates, that significantly expands the search options.


Gabmap is a free web-based application for dialectometry. It measures the differences in sets of phonetic (or phonemic) transcriptions via edit distance. Gabmap has a graphical user interface that makes string comparison facility available as a web application. This enables wider experimentation with the techniques.


The Transcription Quality Evaluation tool can be used to check the quality of phonetic transcription. The only thing the researcher has to do is upload pairs of files consisting of an audio file and a transcription file. After uploading he’ll receive an e-mail with the matching output.
