2.2. Defining languages for your content

ELAN supports the option to define the language or languages that refer to the annotated data. These are based on the ISOcat standard. A tier can have one language reference, whereas a CV can incorporate multiple languages. For more info how to setup a tier, please see Section 2.4.1. How to setup a CV with one or more languages, please see Section 2.6.2.

A screencast is available on Vimeo about setting up multilingual content: https://vimeo.com/126786931

To edit the list of languages you can choose from with a CV or a tier, click Edit from the main menu, and select Edit list of languages.... In the dialog that appears, you will see the current list of languages in the upper pull-down menu. To add a language, choose one from the available languages in the pull-down menu on the bottom of the dialog, and click Add.
