We are glad to announce the availability for downloading of the PhraseNET Database Toolbox, an Academic freeware software for retrieval and extraction phraseological units from Spanish texts with equivalents in Portuguese (by now). It is based on my PhD thesis PhraseNET Automated Detection and Extraction of Phraseological Units - Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (2011)

PhraseNET Database ToolBox for Desktop Computers
with distinct features:
PhraseNET Database ToolBox for the Web
(Mobile Phones & Tablets)

After a one time request both are free for research and teaching

Each computer application has different features and common to the rest of the Computational Linguistics tools that exist. In this case, Phrasenet Database Toolbox brings together innovative features that, among others, can satisfy part of the difficulties of the automatic translators, because although it is an automatic translator, it has features that make it an extractor of Phraseological Units in Spanish with equivalent in Portuguese or, could be subject of another project with equivalents in another language (future project). Although the tool has been developed with corpus and database patterns written in Spanish, the information extraction system can be applied to corpus written or with equivalents in other languages.

PhraseNET Database Toolbox is a short term for PhraseNET Database Toolbox and Numerical Methods for Retrieval and Extraction of Phraseological Units representing more broadly the key tags of this application. In short, information extraction is a system capable of extracting from relevant documents only the information required, in this case phraseological units. Information retrieval is an ordered storage system of documents in a database.
