Nepali Corpora to Help Reconstruction in Nepal

As an answer to the April 2015 devastating earthquake in Nepal, ELRA would like to make Nepali Corpora available for free.

Originally available for research purposes only in the ELRA Catalogue, those Language Resources (2 Nepali Written Corpora and 1 Speech Corpus) will be provided at no cost to those working on the  the development of systems and applications to be used during the reconstruction phase in Nepal, for not-for-profit purposes.

If you feel that ELRA can help in other ways please let us know.
