Parallel concordance — searching translations
The parallel concordance only works with parallel corpora which are aligned. The parallel concordance searches for words, phrases, tags, documents, text types or corpus structures in one language and displays the results together with aligned translated segments in another language. The translated segments usually contain the translation of the search word or phrase but the translation may not be included if the translator decided to use a different way of expressing the idea. The concordance can be sorted, filtered, counted and processed further to obtain the desired result.
The view options allow displaying additional information such as lemmas, tags and other attributes, text types (metadata) or corpus structures. Sketch Engine will also try to locate the translation and highlight it.
The CQL search on the advanced tab is used for complex searches with unspecific criteria or optional criteria.
Users can use their own data to build parallel corpora.
