Dear Avinesh,

I suggest having a look at MultiLing 2011/2013 dataset which includes news source texts, human and system summaries, evaluation data and available in 10 languages (Arabic, Chinese, Czech, English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hindi, Romanian and Spanish) [1], [2], [3].

The work was accomplished by the help of different participants to translate, summarise and evaluate the output and it involved many universities around the globe.


[1] TAC 2011 MultiLing Pilot Overview


[2] Multi-document multilingual summarization corpus preparation, Part 1: Arabic, English, Greek, Chinese, Romanian


[3] ACL 2013 MultiLing Workshop

Dear corpora members,

I am looking for data sets available in summarization. Ideally news and educational domain, but anything would do at the moment.

It would be great if someone could provide pointers.

PS: Data pointers other than TAC & TREC would be highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
