    Dear João,

    At we maintain a catalogue of NLP tools for Portuguese
    (Catálogo de ferramentas) as well as a developer's oriented site to actually
    get the publicly available ones.

    We also maintain a publications catalogue about NLP dealing with Portuguese
    (Catálogo de publicações), currently with 742 entries.

    One of our main lines of activity is evaluation of Portuguese NLP, and we
    maintain a list devoted to this subject ( to which I
    suggest you subscribe, as well as a reference list on evaluation of
    Portuguese tools and systems (see Avaliação conjunta).

    I use this opportunity to ask members of this list who have developed
    systems that have been applied to Portuguese, and/or have published on this
    subject, and who are not yet mentioned in our site to help us enriching the
    catalogues above.

    Subject: [Corpora-List] NLP tools for Portuguese?


     I am compiling an overview of existing tools for tagging
    Portuguese. I would be grateful if you could help me by
    letting me know about sentence chunkers, tokenizers and/or
    pos-taggers. I am interested in knowing about the size of
    the training data (if any), evaluation figures, evaluation
    methods used, type of algorithm/approach (if applicable),
    availability status, pointers to papers describing the
    tools, etc.
     To avoid e-noise, you can reply directly to me; I'll post
    a summary of the contributions.

     Thanks in advance for your help.
