The SVENSK project is developing an integrated toolbox of language processing components and resources for Swedish. SVENSK employs GATE, General Architecture for Text Engineering from the University of Sheffield as a platform in which the components are to be integrated. The goal is that the resources included in SVENSK should be freely available for noncommercial use. A wide range of different modules have been incorporated so far, both in-house modules, commercially available modules, and modules from academia. The results of the integration of the modules in the GATE environment are very encouraging: it is possible to mix modules from different sources, written in programming languages from completely different paradigms and have them interact with each other, thus maintaining a high degree of reuse of algorithmical resources. However, the use of Tcl/Tk and the associated API for processing structurally relatively complex data, is time consuming and considerably slows the processing in GATE.
