The tool allows automatic alignment between parallel texts in the same language. Its purpose is to display various degrees of textual variants based on syntactic alignment.

Each sentence, individuated by the user, has to be placed in one single line, separated by one carriage return, e.g.:
Choose an option to refine the alignment according to specific criteria (ignore punctuation, ignore diacritics, case sensitive or Levensthein Distance). Documentation on every single option to be added.
Click on “Next” to visualize the tokenized sentences, then click “Align” to visualize the alignment.
