Språkbanken - a language technology resource collection for Norwegian
Språkbanken offers digital language resources for use in research and in the development of language technology. The resources can be downloaded from Språkbanken's website free of charge. The collection is expanding continuously.
Språkbanken is a service to that part of the ICT-industry which works with the development of language-based ICT-solutions, to researchers within language technology and linguistics, and to public enterprises which develop electronic solutions for public services. Among other things, Språkbanken contains corpora of written and spoken language, i.e. large collections of text and speech in machine-readable format.
Språkbanken is a national infra-structure initiative designed to ensure that language technology solutions based on the Norwegian language will be developed, and thereby prevent domain loss of Norwegian in technology-dependent areas (see the white paper Mål og meining - "Language and Meaning").
