What nopaque can do for you

All services and processes are logically linked and built upon each other. You can follow them step by step or directly choose the one that suits your needs best. And while the process is computed in nopaque’s cloud, you can just keep working.


File setup

Digital copies of text based research data (books, letters, etc.) often comprise various files and formats. nopaque converts and merges those files to facilitate further processing and the application of other services.

Optical Character Recognition

nopaque converts your image data – like photos or scans – into text data through OCR making it machine readable. This step enables you to proceed with further computational analysis of your documents.

Natural Language Processing

By means of computational linguistic data processing (tokenization, lemmatization, part-of-speech tagging and named-entity recognition) nopaque extracts additional information from your text.

Corpus analysis

nopaque lets you create and upload as many text corpora as you want. It makes use of CQP Query Language, which allows for complex search requests with the aid of metadata and NLP tags.
