Meeting Description: While corpus-based research critically depends on the availability of suitable tools and resources, there is still a lack of user-friendly tools allowing researchers in the soft sciences to create and analyze corpora according to the standards of the discipline.

This panel aims to provide a framework for discussing corpus data, tools and approaches which may allow translation scholars to collaborate among them and with the NLP community, in order to improve the quality of resources and make them available and accessible, with the ultimate goal of bridging the gap between the hard and soft sides of this multi-faceted field.

Panel organizers: Claudio Fantinuoli and Federico Zanettin
Linguistic Subfield: Computational Linguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics; Translation
LL Issue: 23.3809
