Procedures in building the Croatian-English parallel corpus
This contribution gives a survey of procedures and formats used in building the Croatian-English parallel corpus which is being collected at the Institute of Linguistics at the Philosophical Faculty, University of Zagreb. The primary text source is the newspaper<i>Croatia Weekly </i>which has been published from the beginning of 1998 by HIKZ (Croatian Institute for Information and Culture). After a quick survey of existing English-Croatian parallel corpora, the article copes with procedures involved in text conversion and text encoding, particularly the alignment. There are several recent suggestions for alignment encoding, and they are listed and elaborated at the end of the article.
