[Corpora-List] Looking for a parallel concordancer

Hi Montserrat,

I have put a toolkit which includes a concordancer at http://personalpages.manchester.ac.uk/staff/scott.piao/research/DownLoad/download.htm

Although it is not specifically designed for parallel corpus, it can extract concordance lines of translations using regular expression queries. For example, put the translation sentences side by side in the corpus, then give query like: (expression)|(translation_of_expression)

then the tool will list the sentences containing these two word/expressions translations. More complex search is possible using similar regular expressions.

Hope this will help.
