Building a Parallel Corpus on the World's Oldest Banking Magazine


Volk, Martin; Amrhein, Chantal; Aepli, Noëmi; Müller, Mathias; Ströbel, Phillip (2016). Building a Parallel Corpus on the World's Oldest Banking Magazine. In: KONVENS, Bochum, 19 September 2016 - 21 September 2016.

Abstract

We report on our processing steps to build a diachronic parallel corpus based on the world's oldest banking magazine. The magazine has been published since 1895 in German, with translations in French and partly in English and Italian. Our data sources are printed issues (until 1997), PDF issues (since 1998) and HTML files (since 2001). The corpus building poses special challenges in article boundary recognition and cross-language article and sentence alignment. Our corpus fills a gap in parallel corpora with respect to genre (magazine articles), domain (banking and economy articles), and its time span (120 years).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
