Use cases for a Sign Language Concordancer

Abstract : This article treats about a Sign Language concordancer. In the past years, the need for translated content into SignLanguage have been growing, and is still growing nowadays. Yet, unlike their text-to-text conterparts, Sign Langaugetranslators are not equipped with computer-assisted translation software. As we aim to provide them with such software,we explore the possibilities offered by a first tool: a Sign Language Concordancer. It includes designing an alignmentsdatabase as well as a search function to browse it. Testing sessions with professionals highlights relevant use cases fortheir professional practices. It can either comfort the translator when the results are identical, or show the importance ofcontext when the results are different for a same expression. This concordancer is available online, and aim to be acollaborative tool. Though our current database is small, we hope for translators to invest themselves and help us to keepit expanding
