Upload Kratylos Data

You are not logged in. Please login before submitting your data.
Kratylos stores your data files and also derives new files in its own representation. It also stores your media files. However, you should keep a copy of all your data and media files, because we can't guarantee that the copy on Kratylos will survive failures.

Upload File

or drop files here
Upload your Kratylos data here. Your uploaded file can be any of the following, or it can be a zip or tar/gzip or tar/bzip file containing one or more of the following.
  • Fieldworks Explorer dictionaries (in DICT or LIFT formats) (XML).
  • Fieldworks Explorer TEXT files (XML).
  • Praat TextGrid files (XML).
  • ELAN annotation format (EAF XML)
  • TLex dictionary format (XML)
  • Toolbox files
  • eXtensible Interlinear Glossed Text (Xigt) files
  • Transcriber (trs) files
  • Media files, either audio or video, in any recognizable format. You might add these files later after uploading and viewing the rest of the data. Name the media file (not including the extension, such as .MP3 or .WAV) according to these rules:
    • Fieldworks Explorer TEXT: Title-Segnum
    • Fieldworks Explorer LIFT: As specified in the pronunciation media tag (omitting pathname)
    • Praat TextGrid: same name as the TextGrid XML file, up to the first dot, if any (omitting pathname)
    • EAF: As specified in the EAF XML file (omitting pathname)
    • Transcriber: As specified in the XML file (omitting pathname)
If upload fails when you upload a single file, try putting the file in a zip, tar/gzip, or tar/bzip package instead.


Use lower case, single word


Fieldworks Explorer TEXT files: only used if no title in the file. Otherwise optional, but recommended to distinguish independent sets of files for the same language.
