Allgemeine Bevölkerungsumfrage der Sozialwissenschaften

The German General Social Survey (ALLBUS) collects up-to-date data on attitudes, behavior, and social structure in Germany. Every two years since 1980 a representative cross section of the population is surveyed using both constant and variable questions. The ALLBUS data become available to interested parties for research and teaching as soon as they are processed and documented.

The databases are available online and for free. They are organized in communities and collections with diverse content ranging from information on various economic, political and social of Mexico in different periods of federal government until election survey results conducted by higher education institutions as the CIDE and pollsters as Mund Americas.

Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals
Bayerisches Archiv für Sprachsignale

The Bavarian Archive for Speech Signals (BAS) is a public institution hosted by the University of Munich. This institution was founded with the aim of making corpora of current spoken German available to both the basic research and the speech technology communities via a maximally comprehensive digital speech-signal database. The speech material will be structured in a manner allowing flexible and precise access, with acoustic-phonetic and linguistic-phonetic evaluation forming an integral part of it.

CLARIN Centre Vienna (CCV) is Austria’s main connection point to the European network of CLARIN Centres. It is an Austrian contribution to CLARIN-ERIC and being hosted by the Institute for Corpus Linguistics and Text Technology (ICLTT) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. It is jointly funded by the Academy and the Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy. If you have language resources, would like to share these with the scientifc community (and/or the public) and want to make sure that the data will be around in the future, contact us. We offer archiving and online availability of the resources. If needed, we will assist you in converting data and metadata into required formats. CCV is embedded in the Digital Humanities Austria (DHA) initiative which has started in January 2014. DHA represents the umbrella under which the DH infrastructure activities CLARIN and DARIAH are conducted in Austria.

CLARIN-D Centre Leipzig ASV Automatische Sprachverarbeitung
CLARIN-D repository at the University of Leipzig

The CLARIN­-D repository at the University of Leipzig offers long­term preservation of digital resources, along with their descriptive metadata. The mission of the repository is to ensure the availability and long­term preservation of resources, to preserve knowledge gained in research, to aid the transfer of knowledge into new contexts, and to integrate new methods and resources into university curricula. Among the resources currently available in the Leipzig repository are a set of corpora of the Leipzig Corpora Collection (LCC), based on newspaper, Wikipedia and Web text. Furthermore several REST-based webservices are provided for a variety of different NLP-relevant tasks

Virtual Language Observatory

CLARIN is the short name for the Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure, which aims at providing easy and sustainable access for scholars in the humanities and social sciences to digital language data (in written, spoken, video or multimodal form) and advanced tools to discover, explore, exploit, annotate, analyse or combine them, independent of where they are located. To this end CLARIN is in the process of building a networked federation of European data repositories, service centres and centres of expertise, with single sign-on access for all members of the academic community in all participating countries. Tools and data from different centres will be interoperable, so that data collections can be combined and tools from different sources can be chained to perform complex operations to support researchers in their work. At this moment the CLARIN infrastructure is still under construction, but a number of participating centres are already offering access services to data, tools and expertise. On the services page we show the services accessible at this moment and we explain how and by whom the various services can be accessed. The main tool is the 'Virtual Language Observatory' that provides access to the different national CLARIN centers and their data.

Clarin in Denmark
CLARIN i Danmark is a Danish IT infrastructure intended for use by humanities scholars. The infrastructure includes digitized research material in the form of written and spoken texts, audio and video records, lexical resources and tools. Part of the resources collected or converted to other formats as part of the project. Other resources developed or collected in other projects and made available to researchers through The website is regularly updated with new materials and tools. The vision is to create the humanities researcher's toolbox through the creation of resources with associated tools and integrating resources together in a web-based electronic research environment provided for humanities researchers. Such access to resources and tools will allow scientists unprecedented opportunities and will also help to enhance their ability to participate in European collaborative projects. The Danish CLARIN project will eventually generate better conditions for Danish language technology research and development.


The focus of CLARIN INL Portal is on resources that are relevant to the lexicological study of the Dutch language and on resources relevant for research in and development of language and speech technology. For Example: lexicons, lexical databases, text corpora, speech corpora, language and speech technology tools, etc. The resources are: Cornetto-LMF (Lexicon Markup Framework), Corpus of Contemporary Dutch (Corpus Hedendaags Nederlands), Corpus Gysseling, Corpus VU-DNC (VU University Diachronic News text Corpus), Dictionary of the Frisian Language (Woordenboek der Friese Taal), DuELME-LMF (Lexicon Markup Framework), Language Portal (Taalportaal), Namescape, NERD (Named Entity Recognition and Disambiguation) and TICCLops (Text-Induced Corpus Clean-up online processing system).

The repository is part of the eScience infrastructure of the University of Tübingen, which is a core facility that strongly cooperates with the library and computing center of the university. Integration of the repository into the national CLARIN-D and international CLARIN infrastructures gives it wide exposure, increasing the likelihood that the resources will be used and further developed beyond the lifetime of the projects in which they were developed. Among the resources currently available in the Tübingen Center Repository, researchers can find widely used treebanks of German (e.g. TüBa-D/Z), the German wordnet (GermaNet), the first manually annotated digital treebank (Index Thomisticus), as well as descriptions of the tools used by the WebLicht ecosystem for natural language processing.

Das Sozio-oekonomische Panel
Research Data Center of the SOEP

The German Socio-Economic Panel Study (SOEP) is a wide-ranging representative longitudinal study of private households, located at the German Institute for Economic Research, DIW Berlin.

The data provide information on all household members, consisting of Germans living in the Old and New German States, Foreigners, and recent Immigrants to Germany. The Panel was started in 1984. Some of the many topics include household composition, occupational biographies, employment, earnings, health and satisfaction indicators.
