News from the Language Bank of Finland 13th March 2013
The Scientist’s User Interface (SUI) has been updated
The default character encoding in Hippu is now Unicode
- The default character encoding on the application server Hippu at CSC used to be latin-15 for all users, including the users of the Language Bank of Finland. The default encoding has now been changed into en_US.UTF-8 (i.e., Unicode) for all Language Bank users. This should make the processing of text corpora easier. You may of course change your personal default settings if required. Instructions (in Finnish):https://kitwiki.csc.fi/twiki/bin/view/FinCLARIN/KielipankkiOhjeetSovelluspalvelinMerkistonVaihtaminen
