How do I access a specific corpus in the Language Bank of Finland?


Many corpora can be accessed without having to sign in. Some corpora can be accessed only after you have signed in or after you have applied for access rights. If you are not able to access a particular corpus directly or by signing in with your university credentials, see the access rights instructions.

In case you have the access rights that are required for a specific corpus, you can access it in some of the following ways:

  • The access link of the corpus can be found in the list of corpora (the Location column) or on the metadata page of the corpus in the META-SHARE directory (Access location). As an exception, no direct link is available for accessing the corpora that are available in the CSC computing environment.

There are two main types of access restrictions to corpora:

  • CLARIN ACA: You have to identify yourself as member of the academic community to access the corpus. Usually, logging in with your university account is sufficient.
  • CLARIN RES: You need to apply for individual access via
