API

for text analytics, Natural Language Processing (NLP), corpus building and searching

The text analytics API was developed to enable other software to exploit the NLP functionality of Sketch Engine. The API opens the door to a complete suite of text analytics tools in Sketch Engine which is designed as text analysis software. It mirrors the functionality available through the web interface.

We offer a complete functionality for at least 25 major languages. Certain features (e.g. morphological analysis or part-of-speech tagging) might not be available for all 90+ languages. Please contact us to check the extent of support for your language.

One-off jobs

If you need a large amount of langauge data processed, analysed or generated only once, it is usually more practical and cost-effective to request a one-off job. An example can be a generation of a word database of all words in a language or processing a multi-billion-word data set into a text corpus. The language data will be processed by the Lexical Computing team and delivered in a format according to your specification.
