The Portal for the Presentation of Slovene Language Resources and Tools

Portal for the Presentation of Slovene Language Resources and Tools

The Portal for the Presentation of Slovene Language Resources and Tools is a library of video tutorials that present the purpose, content, and structure of various freely available digital language resources and tools for Slovene. The portal presents different corpora and concordancers, dictionary portals, libraries and collections of digitized resources, tools for language annotation, services such as language counselling, and similar.

The portal is aimed at general public, offering the users an overview of available options for Slovene and giving them an opportunity to learn or refresh their memory about the use and features of a specific resource or tool. The video tutorials are thus as concise as possible, focusing on the presentation of the resource as a whole, as well as on providing specific examples of language problems that can be answered by the resource in question. The tutorials are prepared in a way so they can be watched on different devices with different screen sizes. In addition, the users have the option to watch them with Slovene or English subtitles.

The portal was prepared at the Institute for Slovene Studies Trojina in cooperation with the authors of the presented resources and tools. All the information resulting from the project activities is freely available for educational purposes (for the users) and further project dissemination (for the authors).

The portal is a result of two smaller projects funded in 2014 and 2015 by the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia under the Public call for funding projects focused on the presentation, promotion and development of the Slovene language.
