Språkbanken - a language technology resource collection for Norwegian
- In correlation with Språkåret 2013, The National Library of Norway will host a conference on language and technology. Organizing partners are The Research Council of Norway and The Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO). Follow this link to read more about the conference.
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").
Språkbanken's resources are available for download from our website, free of charge. Click Available Resources in the margin to the right to read more about specific resources.
