The European Language Resource Association (ELRA) is pleased to announce the distribution partnership with FID.

In cooperation with ELRA, FID Linguistik has developed a licensing model based on a pay-per-use principle to grant licences for individual corpora from the ELRA catalogue to German researchers. The objective is to support German linguists’ research activities by giving them access to commercialized language resources.

With the financial support of the German Research Foundation (DFG), the service is free of charge and intended exclusively for researchers affiliated to an academic institution in Germany.

During the partnership’s first phase, a selection of written corpora is available from the ELRA Catalogue. The list of eligible resources can be found here:

For detailed information on how to proceed to gain access to the corpora, please visit the FID page:
