The CLARIN Knowledge-Centre for linguistic diversity and language documentation (CKLD) is a new, distributed CLARIN K-Centre and offers expertise on data and data-related methods, technology and background information on language resources and tools to researchers – including students and native speakers.

We support researchers from the early planning phase to the realization of language documentation and other fieldwork based research projects as well as typological research. We provide information and assistance relating to fieldwork and data-related methodological aspects and in particular relating to equipment, digital tools, methods, where to find data and information, whom to contact for specialist information on particular regions or language families.
