We aim to make all the TextPro modules available for four languages: English, French, German and Italian, both for research and commercial purposes. Please consult the table below to check which modules are currently available for each language and for which use.

The distribution of most modules includes the source code and the training model or, if the module is rule based, the set of rules used.

* SyntaxPro is currently distributed for research purposes only

In addition to the TextPro modules, the current distribution includes:

    • TextPro API: Java APIs allowing you to easily integrate TextPro with your software

    • TextPro as a web service: makes TextPro available under a Client-Server architecture


TextPro is available both for research and commercial purposes.

Request TextPro for research purposes

Limited research licenses. If you are affiliated with a profit-making company, you can still obtain a time limited free research license if your company is involved in a research project funded by a public organization (e.g. a national or local government, or the European Commission). This license allows for the use of TextPro only within the framework and for the duration of the project.

Commercial licenses. For all other cases, we offer commercial licenses for evaluation purposes, for internal use and for re-selling.

It is important for us to have feedback on research involving TextPro: we kindly ask you to provide us with information and comments about how you have used TextPro.
