NERanka: Named Entity Recognition and Annotation Tool
This tool is a web application for named entity (NE) recognition and tagging in Serbian that relies on large-scale lexical resources and a cascade of finite-state transducers. It is based on previously developed components for LeXimir (Tool for lexical resources management and query expansion) and VebRanka (web query expansion tool) and uses various lexical resources. NERanka recognizes several types of named entities, and the user can choose either all NE types or select specific NEs from the Person, Organization, Location, Amount or Time group. Annotation of uploaded text is possible for XML and textual documents. For tagging NERanka uses XML tags which describe the type and subtype of the named entity.
