NLP preprocessing, terminology extraction, and multilingual alignment from command line. Getting Started [using Docker]

Java API

Embed TermSuite in your Java application and get access to all functionalities and full control.

// Create the corpus object
TXTCorpus corpus = new TXTCorpus(
    Paths.get("wind-energy", "documents"));

// Do the NLP preprocessings
IndexedCorpus corpus = TermSuite.preprocessor()
    .setTaggerPath(Paths.get("path", "to", "treetagger"))
    .toIndexedCorpus(corpus, 500000);

// Extract the terminology

// Keep only top 1000 terms by specificity with their variants

// Export the terminology to TSV
TermSuiteFactory.createTsvExporter(new TsvOptions())
    .export(corpus, Paths.get("my-termino.tsv"));

Graphical User Interface
