The CLARIN centres offer a wide variety of applications to discover, explore, exploit, annotate, analyse or combine language data.
The list below gives an overview of the richness of these tools. Alternatively, if you have a specific file to be processed, the Language Resource Switchboard can help to select a matching tool interactively.

The Language Resource Switchboard can assist with finding the right language processing tool for your data. Upload a file, or enter a URL, and the switchboard will provide step-by-step guidance to have your data processed with a CLARIN tool.

Some example use cases:

Tools Per Centre

ASV Leipzig

ASV Toolbox is a modular collection of tools for the exploration of written language data. The topics covered contain language detection, POS-tagging, base form reduction, named entity recognition, and terminology extraction. On a more abstract level, the algorithms deal with various kinds of word similarity, using pattern based and statistical approaches. The collection can be used to work on large real world data sets as well as for studying the underlying algorithms.

Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals

Featured example: WebMAUS

Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and Humanities

The web services provided by the CLARIN-D-service center at the BBAW (Berlin Brandenburg Academy of Sciences) are linguistic computer programs intended for automatic analysis and annotation of German texts. Additional web services provide machine-accessible interfaces to the center's corpora and linguistic databases.
