- Click Create to create an empty corpus and to go to the next step.
Add a File
(If you wish to add data using WebBootCat instead, click Cancel and then Add data from the web using WebBootCaT in the corpus screen.)
Click add a new file and chose from these options:
- upload a file from your computer
- download from a URL
- upload from the Sketch Engine server
FTP to the.sketchengine.co.uk at port 10021 to upload files, use the same username and password as for logging into the web interface – FTP tutorial
Uploading multiple files at once
You can also add multiple files in an archive using formats: .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, and .tar. bz2. Optionally, if the file names should be preserved, click 'Expand this archive instead of converting it to a single plaintext'. It is recommended, however, to put all metadata (including the file name) in XML structures inside the file and not use the 'expand' option.
You need to (re-)compile the corpus after adding data to your corpus.
You will find your corpus by clicking Home and going to My corpora.
