Welcome to KitWiki

This site is for the teachers, researchers, students, professionals and other persons who have an interest in language technology or who use or build computational language resources.

This is a WIKI site and thus a place where users both use it by reading information and experiences written by others, and contribute themselves to it by writing about their experiences and findings to other users. We do not expect that the staff of the CSC Language Bank would provide the contents to this KitWiki, rather it is the task of the user community to build the contents incrementally. The KitWiki is also a perfect place for collaboration among groups of people at distance.

This KitWiki does not even attempt to cover everything. Instead, pages are expected to provide pointers to other existing or alternative sources whenever useful. This Kitwiki is not and will not become an encyclopedia like the Wikipedia. Instead, you are encouraged to write encyclopedic articles about language technology and language resources directly in Wikipedia or the wiki of the ACL and put links to such articles here.

For help on joining and getting started, see the Help section on the side bar, and read the GettingStartedWithKitWiki topic.
