Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure

2015 — 2015
Research Areas

CLARIN is the Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure, which provides easy and sustainable access for scholars in the humanities and social sciences to digital language data (in written, spoken, video or multimodal form), and advanced tools to discover, explore, exploit, annotate, analyse or combine them, wherever they are located. CLARIN is building a networked federation of language data repositories, service centres and centres of expertise, with single sign-on access for all members of the academic community in all participating countries. Tools and data from different centres are interoperable, so that data collections can be combined and tools from different sources can be chained to perform complex operations to support researchers in their work.

At the moment, the CLARIN infrastructure is still under construction, but a growing number of participating centres are already offering access services to data, tools and expertise. On the services page we show the services accessible at this moment and we explain how and by whom the various services can be accessed.

In Austria, CLARIN has joined forces with DARIAH – Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities as dha - digital humanities austria.
