Online repository offers resources for researchers

We recognize that the only way to advance language technologies research is to share our results with other professionals and researchers across the globe. The LTI Catalogue contains more than 100 different resources like tools, libraries, web services and data that are available to anyone. We hope that the catalogue will grow and thrive as our research does the same.
