In OPUS we use the corpus work bench from IMS stuttgart. We also have our
sentence alignments in XCES and querying the data (2 or more languages)
works fine. Look at the opus homepage: http://logos.uio.no/opus
and the query form: http://logos.uio.no/cgi-bin/opus/opuscqp.pl
There are also some scripts you might want to use for converting your xml
data to cwb input. check the cvs from the opus homepage and look into the
scripts directory. don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

best,


Jörg Tiedemann
