Concordance is a flexible text analysis program which lets you gain better insight into e-texts and analyse language objectively and in depth. Its lets you count words, make word lists, word frequency lists, and indexes. It has widespread applications in content analysis, language engineering, linguistics, data mining, lexicography, translation, and numerous commercial areas and academic disciplines. It can make full concordances of publishable quality showing every word in its context, handling texts of almost any size. It can make fast concordances, picking your selection of words from text to facilitate targeted analysis. You can view a full word list, a concordance, and your original text simultaneously, and browse through the original text and click on any word to see every occurrence of that word in its context. You can analyse text directly from other Windows programs via the Clipboard, or use multiple input files. You can make Web Concordances, turning your analysis into linked HTML files with a single click. A Lemmatiser lets you group together any words you choose on related topics. A Collocations display shows which words occur most often next to others. Pick and Stop Lists let you specify words to be included in or omitted from your analysis. Concordance works with nearly all languages supported by Windows. Alphabet and contexts are user-definable. A user-definable reference system can let you identify which section of a text each word comes from or which logical category of your choice it belongs to. You can select and sort words in many ways, search for phrases, do proximity searches, sample words, and do regular expression searches. See statistics on your text, including word types, tokens, and percentages, type/token ratios, character and sentence counts and a word length chart. There is full print preview and printing, with control over page size, margins, headers, footers, and fonts. This is the most flexible and powerful text analysis software.

EULA - End User License Agreement
You are granted a licence to use the unregistered version of Concordance (the software) free of charge for personal evaluation and trial purposes only. You may evaluate the software for a period of up to 30 days from the date of installation. After that period, you must register the software or remove it from your computer.
The free trial is granted purely for you to evaluate the software.
-- The unregistered version may not be used for teaching or demonstration purposes or as part of an educational course in any way, either as teacher or as student.
-- You may not distribute, publish, or exhibit files, Web Concordances, or other materials made with the unregistered version. You may not make them accessible on a website or in any other way.
-- You may not install or use multiple copies of the unregistered version, and you may not permit others (for example, a class of students) to do so.
To remind you to register, the unregistered version will add an 'Unregistered' notice to concordances when you export or print them. You may not remove these notices.
When you register you will be granted a user licence and given a registration code. You may enter this code in exactly one copy of the program, installed on a single computer. The registered software may not be copied nor distributed in any way, nor may the registration code be divulged to any other person.
All materials you create with the registered version of Concordance are your property entirely and you may do whatever you like with them, just as you could with documents you create using a word processor.
More than one person is allowed to use the software, as long as no two people use it at the same time. If in doubt, think of it as a book: it can be read by many people, but by only one person at a time. If more than one person is to use the software at the same time, you need to buy a copy for each person. If you want to install the program on more than one computer, you must buy additional copies. This applies even if you want to use one copy at work and another at home.
When you buy a licence, you buy a right to use the software. The licence is non-transferable: it may not be sold, nor given away, nor assigned to others by any means. The software is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and by international treaties. Title, ownership rights, and intellectual property rights in the Software shall remain with R.J.C. Watt. The software is the product of R.J.C. Watt solely and is not the product of nor endorsed by any organisation or institution.
All valid licences are supplied direct from me to you as end-user. There are no authorised re-sellers or agents for Concordance. Any third party offering to sell licences to you is acting without authorisation and such licences will be invalid. If your company policy obliges you to use a local re-seller, you should begin by getting in touch with me.
The licence will terminate automatically if you fail to comply with the conditions described here.
