Summary of the paper

Title Building a multilingual parallel corpus for human users
Authors Alexandr Rosen and Martin Vavřín
Abstract We present the architecture and the current state of InterCorp, a multilingual parallel corpus centered around Czech, intended primarily for human users and consisting of written texts with a focus on fiction. Following an outline of its recent development and a comparison with some other multilingual parallel corpora we give an overview of the data collection procedure that covers text selection criteria, data format, conversion, alignment, lemmatization and tagging. Finally, we show a sample query using the web-based search interface and discuss challenges and prospects of the project.
Topics Corpus (creation, annotation, etc.), Multilinguality, Part of speech tagging
