ACIDE – integrated development environment for aligned corpora
The lack of comfortable environment with a graphical user interface that would consolidate all software components that need to be used in different stages of preparation of aligned texts for aligned corpora was the main motivation the Language Resources and Technologies Society of the University of Belgrade had in developing their own integrated development environment for aligned corpora, ACIDE (Aligned Corpora Integrated Development Environment). This environment, among other functionalities, provides graphical user interphase (GUI) for:
- virtualization of aligned text,
- control and correction of files generated in the ТМX format,
- splitting files in TMX format into files in separate languages,
- verticalization of text.
ACIDE performs alignment using the program packages XAlign and Concordancier which were developed at the LORIA Laboratory in France.
Authors of the software solution are Prof. Ranka Stanković, PhD and Miloš Utvić, PhD. The software solution was developed under the leadership of Prof. Cvetana Krstev, Phd, Prof. Duško Vitas, PhD and Prof. Ivan Obradović, Phd.
