Building parallel corpora is now easier! We have rewritten and reorganized our web manual on this topic. There are three options to build a parallel corpus:

from spreadsheet data – this is by far the simplest option that requires absolutely no technical knowledge

1:1 matching – this options assumes an intermediate user who knows how to prepare corpus data

m:n matching – this is an advanced option where each segment in any corpus can be mapped to one, many or even zero aligned segments
