The BootCaT method (Baroni and Bernardini, 2004) has proved a fast, effective and versatile approach to corpus building. The method has been applied to small specialist corpora for finding terminology and translations (as originally envisaged by Baroni and Bernardini), and to large, general corpora, for large numbers of languages. To date it has not been applied multilingually. This is our topic. We describe an implemented tool, Comparable Corpora BootCat, and a pilot evaluation.
