Annotation Management Tool: A Requirement for Corpus Construction



We present an annotation management tool, SweLL portal, that has been developed for the purposes of the SweLL infrastructure project for building a learner corpus of Swedish (Volodina et al., 2019). The SweLL portal has been used for supervised access to the database, for data versioning, import and export of data and metadata, statistical overview, administration of annotation tasks, monitoring of annotation tasks and reliability controls.

The portal was developed driven by visions of longitudinal sustainable data storage and was partially shaped by situational needs reported by the portal users, including project managers, researchers, and annotators.
