    Hello all,

    William Colen accepted our invitation to join the
    dev.

    William contributed two big name finder patches,
    the first added multi entity support and the second
    added support to train the name finder on a Portuguese Corpus.

    Welcome!

    Jörn

  • Seja bem vindo William!

    I was actually very glad to see your additions for Portuguese. I speak it (imperfectly), my daughter is Brazilian-American, and I have many friends in Brazil (mainly Rio, but also Sao Paulo). I still hope to start doing more work with Portuguese corpora, but haven't found the time recently.

    Welcome William.

    Unfortunately, I don't have any Portugueese under my belt.
    I'm American born and know English and a little bit ot other languages (Spanish, Korean).

    Enjoy!  And WELCOME!
