Resumen

Este artículo presenta Cadlaws, un nuevo corpus en los pares de lenguas inglés y francés, creado con base en documentos legales canadienses. Describe el proceso de construcción del corpus y las estadís­ticas preliminares que se obtuvieron de aquél. Este corpus contiene más de 16 millones de vocablos en cada idioma e incluye características únicas, pues está conformado por documentos equivalentes desde el punto de vista jurídico en ambos idiomas como lengua de partida. El corpus se basó en autos legales redactados de manera conjunta por dos juristas para garantizar la equivalencia jurídica de cada versión y reflejar los conceptos, términos e instituciones de dos tradiciones del derecho. En este artículo, también se estudia la definición de corpus como corpus paralelo en oposición al corpus comparable. Cadlaws se procesó previamente para traducción automática y el suplente de evaluación bilingüe de referencia (bleu, por sus siglas en inglés), un puntaje que sirve para comparar un texto presentado como candidato para la traducción de un texto contra una traducción considerada patrón de referencia en un sistema de traducción automática neuronal. Hasta donde sabemos, este es el corpus paralelo de textos con el mismo significado en este par de lenguas más extenso que existe, y ofrece libre acceso para uso no comercial.
