This paper presents the process followed to design and build a graphical and language independent tool, Abar-Hitz, for the creation and management of the Basque Dependency Treebank. Abar-Hitz makes the annotation process faster and avoids possible mistakes linguists can make. It is composed of three areas: the corpus area, the tagging area and the tree visualizer area. Three linguists used Abar-Hitz to tag 25.000 word-forms from the Eus3LB corpus, making clear, as the evaluation results show, its utility.
