MultiConcord 4.1

Description: The Lingua Parallel Concordancing Project aims to ease the use of a multilingual corpus by teachers and students. In addition, the Project attempts to implement some of the Text Encoding Initiative Guidelines in the creation of multilingual corpora. MultiConcord is designed to display the use of words and translation technique across different languages. The user selects the desired languages and the text to be searched. Searches can be by single, combined words, or using wildcard characters. The results of a search are displayed on a split screen with the relevant sentences aligned with the comparative text, and the search words highlighted. The results can be sorted and unwanted sentences may be removed from the the results screen. MultiConcord includes a facility to create tests for students replacing pre-defined words with a blank line.

The texts currently available for MultiConcord include Stephen Hawking, A Brief History of Time (English, French, German, Greek, Italian); Hergé, Tintin (French, English, Italian, German); A. de Saint-Exupery, The Little Prince (French, English, Danish); EuroDisney brochures (French, English, German, Italian); and documents from the proceedings of the European Parliament.
