Parallel Corpora

Corpus

  •  European Corpus Initiative Multilingual Corpus I (ECI/MCI)
    A 98 million word corpus, covering most of the major European languages, as well as many others (viz. Albanian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, Estonian, French, Gaelic, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Latin, Lithuanian, Malay, Spanish, Danish, Uzbek, Norwegian, Portuguese, Russian, Serbian, Swedish, Turkish, Tibetan). The primary focus in this effort is on textual material of all kinds, including transcriptions of spoken material. ECI/MCI has 46 subcorpora in 27 (mainly European) languages. The total size of these is roughly 92 million (lexical) words. The corpora are marked up using TEI P2 conformant SGML (to varying levels of detail), with easy access to the source text without markup. Twelve of the component corpora are multilingual parallel corpora with from two to nine sub-corpora. All the alphabetic corpora (there is some Japanese and Chinese) are encoded in the ISO LATIN family of 8-bit character sets (ISO 8859-1, -5 and -7). A complete list of the contents is available following this link.
    Unusually cheap: the ECI/MCI is available directly from ECI at a price of 95 DFl (for payments made by credit card or Eurocheque); 110 DFl (for payments by bank transfer); or 120 DFl (for payments by cheques other than Eurocheques). Need only to sign a license agreement available (Postcript or LaTex version) at this address or this other one.
    It is also available at 35$ price (or trough membership) from the LDC in a CD-ROM in High Sierra format (ISO 9660), readable on UNIX, MSDOS and Apple systems at least: cf. this page.

Login JSON Android using Login Activity

I’ve been trying to release this tutorial quite a while. At last after a long hard effort. Since HttpClient is not supported any more in Android SDK 23, I have to resort to org.json.JSONObject and java.net.HttpURLConnection library to do online database with JSON. The objective of this tutorial is to log-in from a mobile client with the username and password stored in an online database facility. STEP 1: Create a new Android project, this time choose the LoginActivity .

Bootstrap Template for PHP database system - MyCompanyHR

HTML without framework is dull. Doing hard-coded CSS and JS are quite difficult with no promising result on cross platform compatibility.

Pick a file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT

This tutorial is tested on Honeycomb 3.0 environment. In order to be used it in the lower level of Android API, I believe you could just change the target in the Android project. Screenshots Pick an image file using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT The intention of this project is to choose an image file available in the device storage, and simply display it in an ImageView. The benefit of using Intent.ACTION_GET_CONTENT is you don’t have to develop open dialog box which is not available in the Android library. ACTION_GET_CONTENT with MIME type */* and category CATEGORY_OPENABLE -- Display all pickers for data that can be opened with ContentResolver.openInputStream() , allowing the user to pick one of them and then some data inside of it and returning the resulting URI to the caller. This can be used, for example, image chooser (as shown in this article).
