[MCSQ]: The Multilingual Corpus of Survey Questionnaires.

PresenterDanielly Sorato (RECSM - Universitat Pompeu Fabra)

The Multilingual Corpus of Survey Questionnaires (MCSQ) is the first publicly available corpus of international survey questionnaires, comprising survey items from the European Social Survey (ESS), European Values Study (EVS), and the Survey of Health Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE). The recently released Version 2.0 (entitled Mileva Marić-Einstein) is composed of questionnaires of the aforementioned studies in the (British) English source language and their translations into eight languages, namely Catalan, Czech, French, German, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian, as well as 29 language varieties (e.g. Swiss-French). The MCSQ is a relevant digital artefact, that allows researchers in the fields of social sciences and linguistics to quickly search and compare survey items in a myriad of languages. The MCSQ was developed in the SSHOC (Social Sciences & Humanities Open Cloud) Project. It forms part of the EU Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme (2014-2020) and is conducted under Grant Agreement  No. 823782.The digitalized survey items are an interesting resource for survey research, translation studies, lexicology, among others. In this seminar, we present the corpus characteristics and showcase applications of the MCSQ.
