Dear Sidi

I'd like to recommend the UAM CorpusTool It's excellent and is able to do many 
different things and I know it can handle other languages but I'm not sure 
which ones. 

with best wishes

                 Dear all,

                 Please, would anyone have suggestions as to what the best 
software tools there are out there now for corpus linguistics? WordSmith 
is the first one that comes to mind, but I'm not informed of alternatives. 
I've been told that R can also be used, but requires programming. I'm 
interested in tools that can manage languages other than English, 
including languages with non-Roman letters. I've found some freeware but 
that do not seem to handle non-Roman scripts.

                 Thanks for any suggestion you may have.

                 Sidi Facundes
