  • Collexy - electronic application for collations for critical editions based on semantic encoding (TEI-XML), aligned parallel segmentation, non-linear workflow, intuitive graphical interface, the display and parallel tracing of manuscripts, multi-format export, re-usability and extensibility. The main concept applies the idea of digital humanities to the critical edition of the classical text (with accent on the medieval Latin literature) by using algorithms and calculation methods that accelerate the editing and encourage the intuitive approach without affecting the objectivity of the edition, thus producing both digital editions and classical critical editions.
