The University of Helsinki Language Corpus Server (UHLCS) is a multilingual data bank and data server which has been located at the Department of General Linguistics, the University of Helsinki. In Septemberg 2007, the UHLCS was moved to the CSC (the Finnish IT Center for Science). The UHLCS which is maintained by the University of Helsinki was founded late in 1980. At present, the UHLCS contains computer corpora from more than 50 languages, including samples of minority languages and extensive corpora representing different text types. In 2000, the corpora from the Uralic, Turkic, Tungusic, Mongolic, Chukotko-Kamchatkan, Iranian and North-East Caucasian languages were edited for public use with the financial support of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, Leipzig. In summer 2003, the basis for the metadata descriptions of the corpora were prepared with the financial support of the ECHO-project (ECHO = European Cultural Inheritance Online). There are also tools at the UHLCS which can be used in analyzing the corpora. The use of most of the corpora is restricted for research and teaching.
