Abstract In recent years, temporal tagging, i.e., the extraction and normalization of temporal expressions, has become a vivid research area. Several tools have been made available, and new strategies have been developed. Due to domain-specific challenges, evaluations of new methods should be performed on diverse text types. Despite significant efforts towards multilinguality in the context of temporal tagging, for all languages except English, annotated corpora exist only for a single domain. In the case of German, for example, only a narrative-style corpus has been manually annotated so far, thus no evaluations of German temporal tagging performance on news articles can be made. In this paper, we present KRAUTS, a new German temporally annotated corpus containing two subsets of news documents: articles from the daily newspaper Dolomiten and from the weekly newspaper Die Zeit. Overall, the corpus contains 192 documents with 1,140 annotated temporal expressions, and has been made publicly available to further boost research in temporal tagging.
