is a fast concordance (text searching) program with an excellent user-interface. It is used in the analysis of English or other texts -- Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese, etc. -- for linguistic or language teaching and language learning purposes (ESL). As well as providing KWIC concordance results, the software also produces wordlists and collocation information. The program is easy to use, but also comes with a range a powerful features such as Context Search, Regular
Expression search, Part-of-Speech Tag Search, Collocations, and Corpus Comparison.
The software is used as part of many corpus linguistics courses and is also widely used in ESL/EFL for vocabulary learning and language learning in general.
Pro is networkable and operates well under a variety of Windows environments (W95 and above).
Available for an educational price of $85 for a single
user licence. A site licence for 15 computers is $550 for 2 years. (A time-unlimited
licence for 15 users is $1650.) For further information or any questions

A multilingual concordance program for parallel texts (translations).
Up to four languages can be analysed in parallel, but before the analyse can proceed the texts must be aligned so that text segment (=? sentence) 250 of one text is aligned with
segment 250 in the second text. Alignment may be indicated by paragraph marks or tags. This bilingual concordancer is similar in function to MonoConc Pro and includes collocation tables, word frequency lists, collocation lists, regular expression search, as well as a parallel search option and translation and "hot words" utilities.
For more info (perhaps more than you want to know), look at a paper (somewhat old) on ParaConc in html format or as a pdf file. You can also check out the parallel corpora site.
Single user: $95.00. Site Licence (2-year): $750.00 for up to 15 users.
