The Centre for Text Technology (CTexT®) on the Potchefstroom Campus of the North-West University continuously develops and manages language technology products. There are, however, huge quantities of data needed for these developments (especially for the development of machine translation systems). If you have any data available, it would be
greatly appreciated if you could make it available to CTexT for the development and expansion of language technology databases.

We are specifically looking for parallel texts, wordlists and translation memories in the official South African languages, but any other data is also welcomed.

Any data or texts supplied will be used solely for developmental purposes, and absolutely no data will be re-used or distributed in its original format without permission from the original supplier.

If you would like to make a contribution, please contact:
