Swedish-PUD is the Swedish part of the Parallel Universal Dependencies (PUD) treebanks.

Swedish-PUD was created (together with the other parallel treebanks) for the CoNLL 2017 shared task on Multilingual Parsing from Raw Text to Universal Dependencies (http://universaldependencies.org/conll17/). It consists of Swedish translations of the 1000 sentences from the news domain and from Wikipedia, annotated according to the principles of the Swedish-PT treebank. The syntactic annotation has been manually validated, but the morphological annotation is automatically predicted.


Translations were produced by Jacob Nolskog at Teknotrans AB and checked by Joakim Nivre. The automatic annotation was carried out using SwePipe, a tool suite trained on the Stockholm-Umeå Corpus and the Swedish-TP treebank, developed by Robert Östling, Aaron Smith and Joakim, and available from https://github.com/robertostling/efselab. The syntactic annotation was checked and corrected manually by Joakim Nivre.
