CQPweb is a web-based graphical user interface (GUI) for some elements of the CWB – and in particular, the CQP query processor.
CQPweb is designed to replicate the user-interface of the popular BNCweb tool, which also (in its most recent versions) uses CQP as a back-end. Like BNCweb, CQPweb uses a database alongside the CWB to provide extra functions beyond those built into CWB/CQP. However, unlike BNCweb, CQPweb can be used with any corpus.
CQPweb is especially suitable for students, non-linguists, and others for whom a Unix-like command-line is a terrifying prospect. […]

The package provides a simple, yet effective interface for a parallel corpus
using OpenCWB (http://cwb.sourceforge.net). It should work on any linux machine
with only minimal changes in the INI files to reflect paths, and possibly
adjustments concerning language codes. All settings are found in the settings
This web interface to CWB was initially written by Roland Meyer for use with the
ParaSol corpus (then Regensburg Parallel Corpus) in 2006 and has since been in
development by its three authors. The java script based functionality was mainly
added by Andreas Zeman, XSLT-support in the new modular interface mainly by
Ruprecht von Waldenfels, who has supervised the publication as open source. Part
of the architecture is described in Waldenfels (2011). We thank the Center for
the Study of Language and Society, University of Berne, (http://www.csls.unibe.ch)
for granting financial support enabling the publication of ParaVoz as open source.

The IMS Open Corpus Workbench (CWB)
The IMS Open Corpus Workbench (CWB) is a collection of open-source tools for managing and querying large text corpora (ranging from 10 million to 2 billion words) with linguistic annotations. Its central component is the flexible and efficient query processor CQP.
The first official open-source release of the Corpus Workbench (Version 3.0) is now available from this website. While many pages are still under construction, you can download release versions of the CWB, associated software and sample corpora. You will also find some documentation and other information in the different sections of this site.
The scheduled release date for CWB v3.0 was April 1st, 2010. Since then, we have moved on to add the two most-demanded features (Windows compatability and Unicode support) in versions 3.1 and 3.2, and we are working towards a new stable release version 3.5. We welcome all interest in beta-testing these newer versions.
