Trial and paid account limitations

Data download

Sketch Engine contains many valuable corpora. To protect their content, there are limitations to how much data can be viewed and downloaded. This limit can be removed. See the conditions below.

Corpus building (user corpora)

Each user is entitled to a storage space of 1,000,000 words for their own user corpora. More space can be purchased. Trial users can increase their storage space only if they upgrade to a paid account (subscription) first and then purchase extra space.

Download limits

The download limits apply to preloaded corpora only. No limits are applied to downloading data from user’s own corpora. The limit can be removed for a fee.

*) If the corpus is larger than 1 billion tokens, n-grams will only be generated from the first 1 billion tokens. This is a technical limitation and cannot be removed. An n-gram list from the whole corpus can only be generated from the backend of the system at a fee. Please contact us.
